Talking Someone please give your opinion

What do you think is this a good deal? My car does need stuts...

full set of front and rear gabriel ultrag struts new still in the box. bought for 2000 chrysler concorde. should also fit 1998 -2003 lhs,concorde,300m, and intrepid part #s g55664 front ,g55856 rear $150


If I replace the struts do I need to replace the springs? They generally look to be good condition.

Thanks a lot!

I'm not a fan of Gabriel or Monroe they don't last very long. I'm partial to KYB. No you don't need to replace springs unless one breaks or you start to lose ride height. Which is what usually happens over time they just get weak. But if that were the case I'd be lowering it.

That price if new is a good price though for a full set. That's probably over half off.

Springs generally last the life of the car. Unless one is sagging or broken, replacement is not necessary.

I use Monroe and KYB myself...had great luck with both. Dont know much about the gabriels, never used a set.

Well I hope it was a good deal cause I went and picked them up the other day. I did get him to lower the price to 120 though.
Now I just need to install them.

Duh. I already said it was a good deal, if new, all you have to do is look online for the price and you'll see. You can't get 2 struts for that price.
