Do I need to replace all my struts if I just need the front end struts replaced?

(2004 Chevrolet Impala)
in Farmington, NM on March 27, 2013
I called for a quote on replacing my struts and this is the cheapest place where I can do that. Other places will charge me over a grand and its just $600 here for front and back struts. The man said I need to replace the front end as well as the back end if I replace my struts but its only the front that needs replacing. My car is kinda old and I'm tight on cash so does anyone know if I should replace both ends even if its just the front end struts?

Its your car. Replacing all 4 is the ideal circumstance but.....not necessary. You can replace the fronts only if that is what you want to do. As long as you are replacing matching pairs (both front only or both rear only) it will be fine. Just remember with age and mileage the rears will need replacing eventually as well.
