Struts

Anyone have experience with eBay struts? I'm on a tight budget but I also don't want to risk having a failure while driving. The ones I checked out were sensen. But there's a lot others

Re: Struts

Ehhh... I'd save up for knowingly reliable struts. Potential failure can yield catastrophic results.

What's your budget for struts looking like?

Re: Struts

Yeah I know but this car I just bought needs them badly but it's needing a lot of work and I'm broke. It looks like it'll be costing me around 200 . I'd like to stay under 200 if I can

Re: Struts

minimum are kayaba, equivalent to stock...

if you have a 2001-2005, they have struts, as in the shocks are integral to the suspension geometry - they are structural, so called struts. Very dangerous if they fail...

Re: Struts

Replaced all 4 corners on the wife's '02 LX last year with Monroe Quick-Struts and no complaints. Can get good deals on them through Advance Auto with their discounts. Not sure budget wise, but these have been really good.

Re: Struts

I replaced all four of mine from NAPA which is the only real thing on island. Cheap shocks = garbage.... They all failed within 1.5 years.... I ended up spending a few hundred more for Tein Street Basic shocks and couldn't be happier. I run Tein Flex shocks on my Supra and haven't had any issues with them as well.
