    Don't seem well made. Originals were way better, still worked, but getting too rusty. Will probably buy better ones for front. Would only recommend if you can't afford better.

                  Easy fit, good ride, took about 15 minutes to install. Decent quality ride for a daily driver, but I might upgrade later to something for more spitited handling.
