I just ordered OEM uppers, boots, bumpers, seats, and spacers. Now I need to choose whether to keep the existing struts ( they don't appear to be leaking), or go with new OEM struts or KYB struts. The KYB struts are the most economical and I'm just not real comfortable leaving 12 year old, 100K struts on the car.
I'll also check the condition of the bushings when the strut is off. If they are obviously bad, I'll bit the bullet and replace them as well. If they seem to be OK, I'll save them for when I save more money.
I NEVER ride with people who drive like I do!
