    Poor manufacturing quality

    1 of 1 people found this helpful

    I bought a pair of struts for my Civic. Installation was easy, taking less than an hour each. After installation, while backing out of my driveway, it was obvious there was a problem - my alignment was WAY OFF. I was already planning on an alignment after installing the struts, but the car was barely drivable for the two miles to the local repair shop (a major well-known chain).

    The mech who did the alignment, who told me he'd been doing alignments for 30 years, ran out of adjustment on the driver-side tie rod and couldn't complete the alignment. This was because THE CONTROL ARM ON THE STRUT (to which the tie rod connects) WAS WELDED OFF-CENTER FROM THE CORRECT POSITION. The tech got it as good as possible, and told me to come back after replacing the poorly manufactured strut.

    On the drive home the steering wheel had a 45 degree angle (clockwise) while driving straight! That night I got a replacement strut, put it on and then back to the shop for another alignment the next day. Now, with the new strut, the steering wheel was 45 degrees (counter-clockwise) when driving straight! Fortunately, the mech was able to do a proper alignment with this second strut, and everything seems fine now.

    Roll the dice if you decide to buy these, and add an alignment (~$90) which will be needed (assuming they CAN do an alignment).

    Cons: Built to very loose tolerances
