    Where to buy air struts

    I got an 04 v8 sts4 with air struts and all 4 are really needing replacing

    Autozone told me 160 each for the front and 250 each for the back and he was unsure if they were even air struts or not...

    Can anyone recommend a good hopefully cheap place I can find struts for my car

    Either you don't have a 2004 or you don't have a STS4.

    You will need to look at the rpo label in the trunk and list off the codes to us that start with "F" on that label.

    Air struts? Nope.

    Air assisted rear leveling in the rear shocks ONLY? Yep.

    There's apparently aftermarket solutions out there, I just can't recall the manufacturers.

    04 STS4? 05 was the first year the STS was available...

    Re: Where to buy air struts

    My bad I typed and didn't proofread
    I have an 07 sts4
    and I guess air leveling in the back is what I have.

    My entire question is unanswered though where do I go to replace these for a reasonable price.

    Autozone and advance auto by me want $160 each in the front and $260 each in the back I prefer not to spend $800+ if I can help it.... any ideas

    That's cheap. Price out OEM units, it's MUCH more.
