I'm pretty sure anyone with half a brain can figure that part out on their own. Do you really need me to spell that out? That's a given.

I always say (if you ever read my threads) that my advice is a guide. Generally speaking, stock Sachs-Boge struts/shocks are heavily degraded, if not completely blown, by 50k miles.
