High quality strut rods are constructed of high carbon steel, straightened, micro-finish ground, quality chrome plated, and with a diameter equal to or greater than the original equipment
Micro finished pressure tube bore for smooth operating surface of piston and seal
Powered metal pistons resulting in precision tolerance for crisp blow-off valving
Contain high performance hydraulic oil with friction modifiers and anti-foaming agents for consistent damping force through a wide operation temperature range
Ready Strut Features
Noise can occur due to improper mount loading during installation. This can result in mount damage or a crushed bearing. Prevent noise by following the proper installation procedure for strut assemblies.
Benefits of a Strut / Coil Spring / Mount Assembly
Purchasing only the bare strut is less expensive up-front, but a complete Strut / Coil Spring / Mount Assembly provides added benefits:
Simpler and Safer Installation: Unlike a bare strut replacement, the complete assembly does not require a spring compressor or other special tools, making installation quicker and safer.
Saves Money and Labor Cost:The cost of the assembly is often cheaper than buying the components individually, and means you only have to do the job once.
