My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. In order to answer your question I would require a few more details on what you are having trouble with. If you are having trouble aligning the hub / brake assembly with the struts, it may be possible that you will need to compress the strut with a spring compressor, or raise the hub assembly with a jack, carefully.
