Told by mechanic I need to replace these and something else in the front end that is related.
Both front struts failed, had to replace both .....
All potholes and bumps it takes really rough, not fixed yet
Bottoms out with no improvement by replacing rear shocks. I have not fixed the front yet..
replaced 09(back and front), and then had to have them replaced year an a half later(thought to be defective). I have read too many like stories, maybe it has something to do with the van itself??
front strut leaking
replaces. I swayed so much on the highway with weight in my car I almost had a wreck
