I got my parts and plan to do this install on the weekend. I have one questions that I couldn't really see addressed here: do you need an alignment after changing the strut? Thanks,
If u look under control arms, they will be there. The part #'s I received this week was MS25120 & MS25121 Mevotech, There are cheaper ones like Dorman. Hope this helpsAs mentioned good write up. Whats the part numbers I need from Rockauto? I looked on there wedsite and can't find tension struts.
Same here, stealership quoted me the same, after I told him forget that I'll do it myself, he tried to tell me only we have the right tools to do. So wut did I do.... I brought in my pad and showed him the picks on this thread, he had nothin to say lol...awesome write up! just had the mag in to get wheels balanced and they showed me that these were going bad and they needed replaced. i told them i could probbaly do them myself and they qouted me $486.98 to do it!!! f that mess! just looked at the recommendation sheet, same part numbers but they said the parts are 169.99 a piece!! must be nice to be a crook! im so glad we have this community to help each other out and save time, money, and aggravation! thanks again custommagnums!!!
I would be very interested in hearing about how the rack seal repair goes for you. I think I'm in the same boat there but haven't found any info on just what is involved.Thanks for all the great info, I just ordered upper and lower control arms(like they are grease-able), figured if I have her opened up, may as well get er done. That way I can be rid of the clunking noise. Besides I'm doing both cats, coolant bleeder, thermostat, and seals on the right side of the rack and pinion.
Good thing I took Friday off, another fun weekend!!!
