    Strutmasters Install

    Got the strutmasters kit for the rears on my car.

    Install took a bit too long (only did one side for now).

    I installed the new spring bottom first which apparently was incorrect. Spring sits bowed out a bit.

    Doing the other side today and redoing the first attempt. Hopefully it sits better. Will post pics.

    All done, took about 1.25 hours per side.

    Helps to read the instructions specifically... Said to push the top of the spring all the way in until it touches the bump stop.

    Everything is square, tight and right.

    Rides great. No more bottoming out going over speed bumps.

    Pretty stiff back there which is fine. Ride height unchanged.

    I would recommend. Paid $380 USD before shipping and taxes. Comes with plug in resistors that seem to work fine; no issues yet.
