VIDEO: A Loaded Strut Assembly Isn’t Always The Solution

If your customer wants a loaded strut assembly, make sure to take a close look at the application listings.

Loaded strut assemblies have been a game-changer for technicians, DIYers and even counter pros. They’re quick and easy to install, right out of the box.  With a single part number, you can sell your customer the coil spring, strut mount and all of the associated hardware needed to do the job.

However, when you’re thinking about recommending a loaded strut assembly for your customers, you need to exercise some caution – especially when a manufacturer markets its strut assemblies as a one-size-fits-all fitment for a wide range of model years and trim levels.
