Re: Changing struts on Ion 2 and need torque spec and torx size?

The rear suspension uses shocks, not struts(at least on my sedan) they simply bolt on.

I don't know about the rest.

Have you searched the forum for this info?

Re: 2005 Ion 3 water pump making a loud whining noise after changing it. Any ideas?

Re: 2005 Saturn Ion Engine Cuts Off

If Sears said the battery was bad, you should have bought a battery.

Re: 2004 Ion Coupe brake bleed order

Proper bleed order on any vehicle is to do the furthest wheel from the brake master cylinder first. Typically passenger side rear, then driver side rear, passenger side front, then driver side front.
