Hello Stangnetters, I've lurked here for a very long time but it has been decades since I used a wrench on anything long of a simple home repair. Retired, I decided to again work on my vehicles, one of which is a 2000 GT Convertible (104K miles). I have been through YouTube videos, how to posts, and personal contacts on the procedure and have been getting conflicting info. For example, in one video some guy pulls the entire strut mount to drop the strut. A different fellow simply removes the nut atop the strut. A friend and stang fan tells me I need a spring compressor, but the struts on my GT are not coil-over and none of the procedures I've found call for one. A search of Stangnet reveals no basic procedure for this vehicle. To my point ... and it is probably there but I am missing it. Can anyone point me to a proper procedure for replacing front struts on my 2000 GT? The procedure should be a simple one, or so me thinks.
