Replacing our struts assembly, shorten the braking distance, and increase the safety distance, improve steering response, reduce stopping distance and give you more confidence in driving. By increasing the spring stiffness coefficient, the rapid vibration of the wheel is suppressed, the tire is prevented from leaving the road, and the exercise stability is improved.
Damping rods reduce body vibration and bounce by generating resistance through the flow of fluid to absorb or slow down the direct impact of energy. Please check the description and compatibility chart before your purchasing, if you have any question regarding our this product.Step 1: Before You Lift the Vehicle, Loosen Lug Nuts One Full Turn. Step 2: Jack up Vehicle and Use Jack Stands for Safety & Remove the Tire from the Rotor. Step 3: Wheel Alignment Is Necessary After Strut Replacement. Marking the Position of All the Bolts Will Help Keep the Alignment Close to Original and save Time Aligning.
Use a Colored Pencil to Mark the Old Strut on the Bolt. Step 4: Use Penetrating Oil (Such As Wd40) to Coat Any Rusted Fasteners, Let Soak for Approximately 1 Hour.

Listen and Feel for Common Signs of Incorrect Installation While Driving Slowly over Speed Bumps, Rough Road or Potholes. Precautions for replacing the shock absorber. When installing a new shock absorber, you should pay attention to whether the model matches, please pay attention to the matching model list before purchasing, and confirm whether the left and right are correct. Check the quality status of the new shock absorber, such as whether there is oil leakage in the appearance, etc.
Pay special attention to the surface of the piston not to be bumped. Professional tools must be used during installation, and the shock absorber must not be forcibly installed. Pay attention to whether the installation position between the shock absorber and the body and the car is correct. During the assembly process, be sure to protect the surface of the piston rod, and avoid using tools to pull the piston rod or bump or scratch the piston rod, otherwise the shock absorber will leak oil.
All nuts should be new and tightened according to the specified parameters of the vehicle to ensure that the tightening torque of the connection part meets the specified parameters of the vehicle. When tightening the nuts of the connecting part, it should be carried out in the natural state of the tire and meet the specified parameters of the vehicle. 171954,171953, Full strut assembly, Driver Side Passenger side. 2 Piece Set Complete Strut Assembly New Ready to Install.Shock Aborber, Boot, Bumper Kit, Spring Seat, Coil Spring, Isolator.
