Struttin yo stuff

Ok I've noticed my driver side strut has puked out all it's juice. This "might" explain my front end vibe. Hopping front tire. I would have no idea why my struts are out Anyway napa quoted me around 80 bucks for the parts. What does it entail to replace these bad boys?

Is IFS something you can get penicillin for???

Not too bad - you pull it out, install spring compressors, undo the top plate, move the spring over to the new strut, and reverse the procedure.

Wonder if it's due to over extending or compressing the shock with the way the lift works...now would be a good time to evaluate that setup...

I evaluate that setup everytime I look at the truck. I won't be able to sas for a long time. What's the next cheapest setup that accually works? Laugh now I've finally broke down and admitted I need to change my junk.

The in-strut kind of spacer, but new coilovers would be the best thing - contact Toytec lifts, they're here in Denver. Tell him you're a member of COTTORA.

Yeah, if you buy some cheap Monroes from NAPA, they'll be leaking again in no time. Like Troy said, you may want to reevaluate your setup. Or just get some new PREMIUM shocks, like KYBs at CARQUEST.
