    That's crazy the quick struts failed in 2 years. How many miles did you put on them?

    David sad really 15,000 and they were by Monroe to I got a clicking on one side and felt it was little bouncy sure enough not holding up . So I pulled yard struts from a 96 a-body with 75k and replace the strut itself and everything else was good .

    Yeah - I've never been a fan of those. For one; you can't see that the shock cartridge actually has gas pressure in it. I've received several 'bare' struts that didn't have a charge. I sent them back. If the spring is already on there, you can't tell.

    Also, you never know what quality strut mount was used.... and the springs ARE different for our cars based on the engine weight - and they claim the quick strut fits any of them.

    Never had good feelings about those.

    I'm going to be doing this swap onto my 89 century pretty soon. Currently running 225/50R16 with the help of large spacers up front, like 2 inch or something. Hopefully it'll all still fit afterwards
