Front Strut Replacement on 2004 Nissan Quest

How do you change out the front struts and how hard is it?

Asked by for the 2004 Nissan Quest
Pretty conventional front strut replacement, meaning you have to remove the strut/spring assembly, use a spring compressor tool to secure the spring upon upper mount removal, and then swap components.

Not easy for a novice, but not hard for someone with some experience and the right tools, which is critical. If you have never compressed springs before, it can be a dangerous operation with all that force and tension.
