The front passenger strut on my wifes LE has gone bad. Car only has around 50K odo. but it went bad. My wife is not hard on her car and I take care of all of our vehicles. I can't seem to find new struts. I would prefer the inserts since they are cheaper, but can't find any. Searched ebay and found one used set with 30k but don't want to go that route. I am assuming something must have been deffective. It seems to have gone pretty quick. All of a sudden we started getting wheel hop over large bumps on the passenger side and sure enough when I tested it with the car parked its weak and doesn't settle right away.
Other than that no complaints, its been a good car and is pretty comfortble but the seat doesn't go back quite far enough for me. Oh well, mileage best is 43mpg (its an auto) normal is 34-37 with mixed driving. Utah roads aren't the best but they aren't too bad. I guess the guy making the strut or the robot had a bad day.
Any recomendations as far as locating new struts (inserts preferable) would be great, just need oem ride, nothing fancy, from the search option I would prefer KYB since Monroe seems to not have the best reputation anymore, or if someone has upgraded with super low mileage units for sale I might consider.
