Any suggestion on which is the best brand on shocks and struts? Thank you in advance!
What will be the difference between stock springs or aftermarket? What will be the best decision? I have to buy everything! 😐I will get Beilstein or KYB if I decide to go aftermarket for the front struts. Trying to decide if I want to keep the stock springs or not. It's a PITA to change but saves $200+
This is one of the negatives of buying parts online. @RockAuto has paid for broken and/or failed parts to be returned, but they have gotten worse about doing so. I would rate their customer service as one of the worst of any legitimate retail business.I know I'm likely an anomaly, but I replaced both my rear shocks with Beilsteins, purchased from Rock Auto, and for whatever reason one went bad after only a few months. Rock Auto I think would have warrantied it, but the cost to ship it back to them (from Canada) and shipping charge for replacement back to me, it was just cheaper in the end to get a replacement for now from the local Honda dealer....
A little bit more RA customer service via chat or toll number would reduce the hassle of returns due to damage or defects would be an improvement. They warrantied a damaged strut, covered the return shipping and sent a replacement quickly. The strut had a fractured mounting bolt that protruded through the manufacturers box. Wished they send the strut in a larger box that protected the contents better from the rough handling.
