This world class Strut-Plus™ Complete Strut Assembly by KYB is a real problem solver and time saver. It includes all necessary components and is fully assembled. As a rule, to replace the strut itself, the coil spring has to be compressed with a special tool before you can separate it from the strut and the strut mount. The Strut-Plus™, because it's an assembly, already includes even small, hard-to-get components (coil spring insulators, boot, and bumper stop) to eliminate chasing for extra parts. The Strut-Plus™ assembly includes the Excel-G strut with a performance-matched coil spring that resists metal fatigue up to 600% more than competitors.
Many vehicles have spring failures: some of them commonly break while others have sagging problems. Whatever the case, both conditions cause vehicle ride height to be too low. Handling and control are another facts to consider. When a coil spring fails, the strut can be worn too. That's why replacing the spring and the coil strut at the same time makes good sense. Replacing the strut mount whenever the strut or coil spring is replaced is also recommended because the bearing plate and insulating materials wear and these affect noise, vibration, and steering response. So when it's time to replace either of these critical components, the best value is to replace the entire assembly. The Strut-Plus is a great solution, which is fast and easy to install and guarantees that the job is done right, the first time.
