Suspension on 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass

I have a 98 Olds, with 110K, I'm wanting to redo the front and rear suspension. Am I crazy for attempting this or should I get a professional?

When you say REDO, just exactly do you mean. Depending on what you are trying to achieve you can do it.

I was planning on putting new shocks/struts for the front and rear. I did this on an Buick century when I was a teenager, and remember it not being too much of a pain, but my father helped a lot on it. This time the project will be solo.

You can now buy ready struts where you do not have to compress the strut spring to replaced the strut(shock). It comes as a complete assy. Thats for the front, the rear is self explanitory.

The front struts may show signs of wear, or be excessively bouncy ride at freeway speeds. This may begin to occur at around 75,000 miles.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.
