Default Need help picking suspension replacement

Hey y'all, so here's my situation, my struts are pretty much done and im looking to replace them. Right now I'm thinking of going with the FCS strut assemblies from rockauto but I've been reading mixed things about those cheaper struts (FCS, unity, etc..). My car is old and I only need it to last a year or 2 more. I know these cheaper struts arent going to last a lifetime but I'd like to get y'alls 2 cents on the matter. do y'all think I'd be ok going with these cheaper struts just to get my car running well for a few years? p.s. i dont make long drives much at all, the longest drive I do is about 300 miles to my hometown and the same 300 back a couple times a year if that helps with your opinion on the matter. Any help/opinion is greatly appreciated! is offline

Just go with the cheap ones, loaded if you are doing a plug and play yourself.

Sam, from what you outlined, I would get the cheaper struts. If you want to go top shelf, Strange Engineering, is one of the many aftermarket front strut suppliers you can depend on.
