To me it seems fine at 58k. But I'm on CS springs. I assume, that mine will go out sooner than other cars.
I knew, that usually struts should be replaced, around 60k. Some dealers say even 50k.
I'm just starting to look into struts/coilovers, since last weekend, in one trip, I have bottomed out three times on the freeway.
I'm thinking, that maybe my struts got weaker?
I agree. And it may also depends on which car manufacture. I finally replaced all 4 struts on my 1998 Honda CR-V a year ago at 183K miles. The original factory struts were still in good shape function-wise, and the ride with all new OEM struts feels not much better than the old ones.My thoughts are that the "change struts at 50-60 k miles" (especially factory struts) advice belongs in yesterdays trashcan along with the "3 mo or 3000 mile" oil change jingle.Miles and time alone are not a valid indicator of wear.However my experience with aftermarket struts like Monroe,hell they started going soft at 25,000 miles, so yea,50k would seem reasonable for those.
The yellows are adjustable.(huh)What is the difference, between the yellows and reds?
