E46 Quick Struts

Hello All,

I'm planning on doing my front struts and springs soon. My mechanic buddy suggested I look for something called quick struts. Google hasn't turned up anything but I wanted to ask if such a thing existed for our bimmers?

Thank guys!

Don't buy a No-Name damper, buy quality.

Thanks for the heads up Rob43. Koni Streets == Touring? I'm looking for a comfortable DD feel

I'd probably edge my vote to the Koni STR.t's, if in the future you want to install a mild lowering spring like Eibach Pro-Kit or H&R Sports you can.

There is no quick-struts for BMWs. Which is a good thing because quick-struts are garbage. They are good for lazy mechanics and for people wanting to get their econobox beater on the road.
