                These are great! They're fast and easy to install. They have a good ride. I couldn't believe how much tighter my steering was after changing them out. I never would've thought the struts would have affected the steering so much.

                  The product was installed in a 2002 Grand Am and the instalation was overall easy. The quick struts have been installed now for about 300 miles and the car drives how it once did. I hope they hold up as well as the origionals but only time will tell.

                            A:

                            Yes, Alignment recommended anytime when replacement struts are installed, As strut is a structural part of your suspension and steering sub-systems; directly influencing your vehicle’s alignment. It is highly recommended to have your vehicle aligned after your struts are serviced or replaced. Failure to do so may result in uneven tire wear, a drop in fuel economy and excessive wear on other suspension components. However, there are a few exceptions where the vehicle manufacturer does not provide alignment provisions, or where the alignment angles are not affected by a strut replacement. Examples include certain double wishbone, some modified type struts, and suspension systems which utilize shock absorbers. For more detailed information, we need more information and our technicians would be more than happy to assist you if you could please call us at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623).

                            Always replace struts in axle pairs, just like with brakes. And it's a good idea to have the wheel alignment checked also.
