Front suspension question
Posted 22 January 2004 - 04:53 PM
I need new struts but I dont have the money to buy new struts and then pay 100 bucks to get the alignment done by a shop
And as far as the back shocks, is there even an alignment adjustment on the them?

when I buy the new struts, do they come as one piece? or are they strut and then a spring so I'd have to put them togehter?

Mine are so worn out that I can almost bottom out my front just by pushing down on it

I think Advance (do they have those in AK?) can order you KYB.
If you had the dough, news springs are in order, as shocks(and strut cartidges) are just the damper for the rebound - they are not supposed to be the thing that holds the car up.
The salvage yard may be a good place to start - look for a set on a car with low miles. Otherwise, new springs would likely cost you ~$60 a piece.

I'm gonna go look at Carquest tommorow and measure the lengths and see if they will fit.
I bet they will be way better then the subaru shocks cuz tehy are made to handle more weight

anyway torxxx if you want to attempt the honda spring job its cheap, fits with no mods, rides stiffer espically with a load. do a search on it if interested.
my springs came off the front of a 88 accord hatch.
these with a good set of kyb's and yor set. KYB has some strange listings for some subes or none at all. but they do make them and they are probably the best thing avail.
