All I can find is RWD only. Nothing on AWD cars.

It's a very narrow market.

Extremely narrow market.

Haven't looked into it, but I bet the struts you found for RWD were probably just direct swaps with another vehicle or slight modified. I doubt anyone (still in business) would spend the cash involved in designing and fabricating a set from scratch for a platform not many owners modify.

In my experience with suspensions, really the only long term solution for lowering the stock suspension is bags -- which would still have to be somewhat customized.

Is the goal to lower? or just to replace bad ones that you want cheaper?

Thanks, I have no attention on lowering vehicle, just looking to replace

Does anyone know if the RWD front struts will fit the AWD version of the 2006 STS? In know that GM has different part numbers for both, but I wondered if the RWD version fits too

Thanks!

I would expect them to be different due to the front drive axels.

Thanks!THe AWD front strut has a curve in lower section to allow the axle shaft to pass by it. The RWD strut will not fit!!
