Sensen Struts anyone use them? from APX on ebay?

Recommended Posts

I was looking at these for a friends car. Came across reviews on amazon for a variety of makes and models. Seems they look fine and ride fine so initial responses were good but a number of reviews had them failing and sometimes bending inside of 20,000-30,000 miles. Probably best to start with Monroe and work up from there.

A friend of mine bought them, blew them out in under 10k miles and they never rode very well. I've had the same experience with Gabriels. For $100 more you can get a set of KYBs and they'll last 5x longer.

I'll second this- Bought a gabrial rear vs. a kyb rear on ebay just to see. The construction is clearly better on kyb. Also, the KYB is harder to compress and rebounds faster..if that makes a difference.  Observing the difference from a top brand to a 2nd shelf strut, I would seriously hesitate going to the bargain bin struts.  Besides, if you keep an eye out NOS KYBs can go for 40-70 on ebay.
