I have the kybAGX adjustable struts and they are amazing! They have 4 settings, on one the front of my car lifts up a ton, on 4 it doesn't move and it handles amazing! But ive heard the same about the strange adjustables!

I also have the AGX shocks/struts. They are awesome! Very comparable to the Strange struts and shocks on the 91.

ORIGINAL: fordguy17

So i was leaving the walmart parking lot, when i heard a snap and felt the front of my car drop. I got out to see what happened and i see my drivers side tire folded sideways underneath my car!

I had it towed home [:@] and went ahead and removed the strut. It seems the shaft simply broke...

That side was easy to remove since it was broke, but what is the best way to go about removing the other side, so i can replace that strut while i'm at it?

What are my options as far as replacement? Any reccomendations?

Is this common? Anybody else have it happen to them?

I'm just glad that it didn't happen on the interstate etc!!![]

Thanks!
yeah, it will happen while you are driving and total you out.


If a shock or strut have 10 years on em, SCRAP EM.

2 SHOCKS, 2 STRUTS, ALIGNMENT FTW

My boss has a 350 stroked vette (1994),(well had), um anyway, I did the used car inspection and told him the suspension had leaking pistons.

8 months later, two pieces. the motor was all that was left useable, his tranny guts all over the highway.

Shi* stinks, he didnt think so.
