I don't think these are built to last.
I honestly had high hopes when I ordered from here. I try to never complain about my purchases or errors that I could have contributed to, but in the case of this suspension kit I felt it was not worth the investment. Some parts didn't have any grease fittings. Not sure how to extend the life of my product that I can't even grease properly. The complete strut also twisted the bolt right off as I tightened it with a 1/4 " ryobi impact driver. It definitely wasn't a powerful impact and my battery was just about dead. So now I'm driving with 2 bolts holding my strut in instead of 3 and have to listen to the noises that it continues to make. Was I wrong using a 18v impact on the strut mounts? , maybe. But having 4 very young kids and being disabled I didn't want something to come loose and be stuck working on it more because I couldn't afford to have a garage fix it. Next time I will have to consider the options of quality over price before I make my purchase. Shipping was fast but the packages were completely damaged by postal service. I don't have any options to upload pictures at the moment to show but I don't think it affected my parts.
