VIDEO: Recommend OE-Quality Strut Assemblies

A weak spring can cause problems with the vehicle’s steering and handling, and the electronic stability control.

Loaded struts have become popular with DIYers and technicians alike because these pre-assembled parts include the coil spring, strut mount and all of the associated hardware needed to do the job.

They’re quick and easy to install, right out of the box. With a single part number, your customer can renew all of the strut components, without the hassle of coming back to the store for any parts they might have forgotten.

But when you’re recommending a loaded strut, there’s something else you need to keep in mind, and that’s the quality of the coil spring.
