I want to put some agx struts in the rear in the next couple weeks.
Three questions: 1) what all do I need* with the agx's (new top plates, spring iso, boot kit...etc) also would I want anti-pogo washers if I'm not lowered?
2) should I replace the coils as well? It has the original FE4 coils on the back (95k on them) if not, what would be a good replacement for the FE4 coil. 3) it says on rock auto that the agx are for cars w/o 17" wheels. I've heard people say they've run them on their 04-05 SS with no problems. Any insight?Thanks.
Thanks pitch, I thought I remembered you saying you ran them with no issues.
I forgot to mention I just replaced the front struts (under warranty) a month or 2 ago.
Now how about my first question, I definitely am replacing the top plates, how about the spring isolator and boot kit, do I need those as well? Anti pogo washers? Ive only ever replaced quick strut assemblys before.
As long as the boot and isolators are in decent shape (read: not torn or otherwise trashed) they can be reused without difficulty. No anti-pogo washers necessary unless you are lowered. I'd also second PBSS only putting AGXs on the back, I'm not sure I'd mix and match them with a non adjustable strut on the front.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
So you wouldn't recommend mixing the agx with standard struts you say. I would love to get agx all the way around, but maybe Since the fronts are brand new I should just get some standard rears.
How abouth these two, I know the gr-2 are a great option according to feedback on here. How about the Delcos? I like the look of a high rear end, and want to keep it close as possible (or upgraded) from Original FE 4
