In this clip, we're going to talk about the proper service procedure for removing and replacing a front strut on a front-wheel drive vehicle. In this step, we're going to talk about the tools required in order to remove and replace a front-wheel drive front strut. First and foremost you're going to need a replacement strut. Got a Gabriel here in the box. In my opinion, its worth going with the premium versions instead of the cheaper ones. The cheaper ones are substandard from what would come factory on the vehicle. You're going to need a hydraulic floor jack. Two jack stands, these are safety items, most definitely required. You'll need a good standard and metric socket set, we got that here. A couple large sockets added in. A few large wrenches, the sizes of these will vary depending on the make and model. A cheater pipe. A set of side cuts, also known as dikes. Heavy duty spring compressors. And a magnetic tray. You're also going to need your 4-way. These are the tools required in order to remove and replace a front-wheel drive front strut.
