Hello I am in the middle of doing my stuts in the rear of my 95 Neon...
She sounds like a BANG when i hit the smallest bump.
But maybe this can you u out.
i have a book called "Haynes Repair Guide - Dodge Neon 95 - 99) and on chaper 10-9 it tells you how to do your stuts... maybe purchase the book. its come in handy for me on my neon repairs (and there are lots of them
Maybe search Amazon for the book.....
I also did some google searches for the key words "How to do a Struts replacement" and i came up with some site...
Maybe some of this might help u.. i dont know.
(and wish me luck too)
