As the shock absorber mounted on your typical strut assembly wears, its ability to properly compress and rebound and keep your vehicle riding comfortably becomes diminished. The ride may become harsh, bumpy, or bouncy over undulations in the road, and your vehicle may nosedive excessively when braking. Cornering that was once stable is gradually replaced by a high degree of body roll. And if your strut housing has become dented and damaged from road hazards or is leaking hydraulic fluid, its overall operation has become compromised as well. Unity offers replacement strut assemblies that are designed to restore and maintain your vehicle’s original ride height and ride sophistication. What sets these replacement struts apart is their high level of quality, and pre-assembled construction that allows them to bolt in place without the labor or safety risk of compressing/decompressing springs.
Each component within Unity strut assemblies matches the size and shape of those found on OEM equipment to fine tolerances, and superior materials are used in all areas of construction instead of saving pennies where the eye will not notice. For example, polymorphic grease that operates without degrading in temperatures from -58 to 248 degrees Fahrenheit is used inside bearing plates, and metals, rubber compounds, and plastics used in construction all meet or exceed OEM grade. And unlike lesser products from competitors, torque specifications of original components are religiously followed to ensure longevity and proper operation do not become compromised. Company engineers design and test struts to achieve the perfect balance of performance and control for your individual vehicle. Before you visit your dealer and pay 100 percent markup on all the individual parts you’d need plus high labor, consider Unity struts come complete with new bearing plates, top mounts, upper and lower spring isolators, coil springs, rubber dust boot, and a gas-charged shock absorbing cartridge.
