Cheap Struts

Post by MoVolvos » Mon Mar 23, 2020 2:06 am

Purchase a set of cheap struts and a 2 year warranty for $2.99. Seller raised it immediately after the transaction. Have seen them as high as $100 but averages around $55 dollars. Will see how long they last. Just reused the OE Ford Strut Mount and Bearing after cleaning and regreasing. Right side done and feels pretty good on the road. Will install driver's side today.

Finished both front strut install. The $60 deposit spring compressor (pictured) worked much better than the $299 deposit tool. Car rides about 3/4" higher. Very smooth and quiet on the road. Was able to use all the other old parts.
