Shop took a look at my noises (so to speak Laughing ).

Fella said I need a new passenger axle, and new struts... Confused

Knew I shouldn't have blown all my money on breathing mods Laughing

You'll be replacing both(pass & driver) axles anyway, right? Twisted Evil .

I've of these around the forum for a while. Are those more sport oriented, do they offer comfortable ride quality?

they are adjustable, so you can dial in how you want them to feel. You can go from a stock feel to a stiff sporty feel

On a positive note, I did install my rear STB 2 weekends ago, and my front STB just came in the post today Smile
Thanks, Z! Very Happy

Question: Can I go ahead and install the front STB, or wait until the struts are changed? I don't want to be abusing Don's brackets - rather just put 'em on once and be done.

BIngo. I had mine set to the firm setting while tooling around town, but would dial them way back for long road trips. It's the best of both worlds.

I'd be less concerned about Don's brackets than the posts on the strut mounts. Those things tend to go bad. I ended up snapping a stud off reinstalling my stock struts before I sold my Monte Carlo.

Okay. Thanks PB and Iffy for the info. I'll check the pricing on these.

EDIT: It looks as if it'll be about $400 online.
