7 Best Brands for Shock and Strut Mounts
Which struts give the smoothest ride?
The smoothest riding shocks you can get would be ones identical or nearly identical to factory tuning, typically something like the Bilstein B4 series, KYB Excel-G Series, or Monroe OE Spectrum. All of these have the most forgiving valving for road handling and comfort.
What is the life expectancy of struts?
On average, if your car has been “babied,” you can expect your shocks/struts to last about 10 years. If you have really used your car like a workhorse, 5 years is probably all you can expect. This means that for the average driver, 7 or 8 years is the maximum life expectancy of most shocks and struts.
Does Monroe make good struts?
We genuinely recommend using the Monroe Quick Struts. Monroe is a reputable company that’s been around for many years. They offer durable struts that anyone can install and fit perfectly on their vehicle.
Which is better KYB or Monroe struts?
Kyb Shocks & Struts are hands down the better option of the two because they provide a more stable ride and a better overall performance of your vehicle compared to Monroe, even though they are more expensive, we suggest you go with Kyb.
What’s better shocks or struts?
Well, shock absorbers usually give you better handling, while struts give you a lower initial cost for the vehicle. If it continues to oscillate, the shock or strut on that corner of the vehicle is bad, and you always replace them in pairs, two fronts or two rears.
Which is better spectrum or Monroe struts?
The Spectrum strut does not show a coil spring; I would presume then, that it’s not a part of the strut, it’s simply a shock absorber. With 190K miles on the Geo, I would opt for the Monroe Quick Strut if you intend to keep the vehicle longer. The better strut will also reduce wear on the front end steering and drive axle components.
Which is struts are good, and not so good?
At this moment I’m looking at Monroe’s OE http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/monroe-oespectrum-strut-71954/19710384-P?vehicleIdFromReq=283844&isAllVehicle=false&vehicleIdSearch=283844&searchTerm=71954&showTitle= … but only because I’ve heard of that name and you suggested a product from them.
Which is the best way to install struts?
A much easier installation as well. As for the front end, your body weight and bounce test may not suffice to simulate strut fatigue. Again, look at the mileage, have the vehicle on the lift to inspect the seals. Remember, having new, stiff suspension parts on one end combined with not too new on the other end is not recommended.
