2002 Ford Taurus Question: Strut replacement?

 

Question

Camster, 3.0L V6 DOHC, Huntington, NY, June 26, 2012, 15:25

Is this as easy as I'm imagining?
Remove the top mounting bolts,loosen the clamp at the bottom,and misc attachments,and it just pulls out of the control arm with enough clearance? Then I put in a quick strut or have my auto parts shop replace the strut unit itself?

    Yep, I hear ya'! ;-) She's going on eleven,has 179k on the clock,these front struts are original,and clean as the car is in general,I do find things rusting away.
