What made you choose this particular product?
Just looking to replace my blown stock rear struts. Not sure how these OE replacements will last but I don't want super stiff struts for rally racing.

What made you choose this particular product?
Good kit. Rides better than stock. Looking back I would have tried a coil over. Not a knock against these but they aren’t amazing either.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
Yes first time. Have set at 1.75”
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Paid local garage. They put the rear on upside down so I flipped those myself

What made you choose this particular product?
Its oem and helped increase the ride quality without sacrificing ride height. Also is not too stiff or sloppy.
What were you trying to accomplish by adding this product?
Improve the handling.
Once you’ve had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
For the price, they are great. It doesn't handle like its on rails but feels like a performance car from the 80's.
