Re: The "Say whats on your mind/Rant" thread

Has anyone gone and replaced their strut mounts? I need to replace mine before installing the coilovers but Iím debating between Monroe and KYB. Leaning more towards KYB since I found a pair for like 80 bucks but Iíd like to get some experienced opinions if possible around here.

Iím probably going to go with an OES for the rear shock top piece I need, but again Iím open to suggestions if any of you guys have some.

The Monroes run about $50 for a pair

Nice! Same here but with the lowering springs, 13 years AND 177k on the clock I figured it would be best to swap them out (at least the mounts) for the coilover install.

I ended up going with the KYB ones for the front. Have to inspect the rear to verify the condition of those mounts but I suspect theyíre not in the best of conditions.

Happy Easter to you as well!

I just got a new paint job roof and landscaping. I was told my 3bedroom 2 bath 1200 sq foot is worth 1.2 million.
That’s crazy I bought it for 2 hundred thousand.
Location location I guess.
Even being a millionaire on paper I still drive my
Xb someday .

Went looking for parts Monday. Should have taken it as a bad sign, got rear ended at a stoplight. Luckily no damage. Young girls had stopped behind me, then run into me.
