1994 cavalier front strut Replacement

When my car front end goes down in a road dip it seems to bottom out..As far as I know it has the original struts on the front end..and it bounces alot if you push down on the front end..Could the strut be my problem?

Re: 1994 cavalier front strut Replacement

26 year old struts? Yeah they are bad. Probably all the bushings are gone too. How many miles?

I agree with Rame. Probably has 300K miles on it if it has been driven much at all. Struts and rear shocks are probably both completely worn out. Most are ready for replacement at 100K

Go to Advance and buy Ready Mounts, easy to install and then get an alignment.

That is the way to go these days. Don't forget you can buy online and use discount codes to save some money.

Rokauto is not what it was, shipping has become an issue.

Been over 2 years since I had my Sunbird but I do remember how much better it rode and handled after new Ready-Mount struts.
