recently i took my car to the mechanics because there was a bunch of squeeking when i turned the wheels a lot and the mechanic said it was my struts. So the racelands come with parts that will replace the struts right?

so all i need to get are the adjustable endlinks and spacers?

Gnna replace ur squeaky struts. Endlinks, yes. Believe either racelands or the impala ones are fine. And spacers only depends on ur wheels.

Ok so, I went to Kragens and.... I felt like an idiot talking to the guy because I had no idea what exact year, make and model you guys are telling me to get. So for the endlinks what exact ones are you all talking about?

total cost i spent on my racelands will come out to be around $500 with everything + an alignment. am i satisfied? totally its exactly what i wanted. if your just looking to drop your DD and have some adjustabilty these are sufficient
