Back to riding on a QUIET cloud of air


Recommended Posts

Finally replaced my front air struts w/ OE replacements

No longer hearing the noise from the top of strut which has gotten worse during the last year

Can't say I notice a significant difference in the ride/handling which is impressive since they were last replaced about 5 -6 years ago=120k miles 

Currently have 220k miles on it (2009 AWD)

I know I could have saved $ w/ aftermarket, but I was a engineer w/ big3 and I've seen studies showing that aftermarket parts are often lacking 

And since the OE parts have given me good service, I don't mind paying more

That's great, How much did it cost if you don't mind me asking? They do have OE replacements on Ebay for about $6-700.
