Struts 2004 Vibe Base

Postby Strata » Thu Feb 16, 2017 4:19 pm

Hey people! I found some complete strut assemblies manufactured by a company named Detroit Axle on Amazon. All 4 struts for $250 delivered. Has anyone ever heard of this brand\manufacturer? I'm gonna give the job a shot, from reading the procedure here and YouTube videos, I think I can handle it. Any input is welcomed and appreciated...

Vibe Love,

I never heard of that off-brand. In struts you get what you pay for. I used Monroe Quick Struts. I once used an off brand and it was a failure. The "brand" was Raybestos, nothing but a cover name for Chinese junk. One strut broke after 10K miles.
Go with KYB, Monroe, Tokico, and maybe Gabriel. I went with Monroe because I wanted a smoother ride.
