g96nt x-post reply...

Just a quick follow-up.

I got my strut assembly Today.
$50 From a junkyard in Maine.
I said to him: "all I need is the strut housing, you can keep everything else."

when I go to pick up the "box" it Weighs about 40#

Turns out I got the strut assembly, rotor, ABS sensor, spring, strut insert and strut-mount. all for $50.

Seems like junkyards are a hit-or-miss with me.
They either screw me out of what I want, or send me WAY more than what I need.

Anyways... looks like I might end up doing this side on my's just going to be a transfer of parts from one assembly to another, and then re-install won't require a compressor because of the lowering springs.

WyldSaabMan yea i dont think it would matter. the housings are all the same, I am pretty sure its just the spring and strut which were different, and since your using other springs and shocks it doesnt matter.

and where is my gas card

different paint on strut assembly?

for my year there's about 6 different marked strut housings.

My assumption is that the different markings are all related to spring setups.
I got a plain white-marked strut assembly for the SE, since I'm using my own aftermarket spring/strut.

Please tell me I'm "okay" w/ this...
