Strutmasters Product Review


We understand the importance of researching a product before buying it. Here at Strutmasters, we want to make it easy to find out what real people say about our products we offer.

Nuts for Rear Suspension replacement kit.

Over all the kit was very well designed and relatively easy to install. The major problem I had was with the nuts used to attach the puck and plate (parts used to hold the coil in place). The directions show a nut with a lip that will sit on to of a wrench, instead I received standard nuts with lock washers. These were very difficult to use. A self locking nut with a lip would have made the install considerably easier.

Over all it took me about eight hours. I am fairly inexperienced at auto maintenance but generally mechanically inclined. I learned two lessons that would have rapidly sped up the install. First, the upper nut of the shocks which were unworkable with a wrench (no opposing nut on the stock shocks) cut off quite easily with a sawzall with a heavy metal blade, although on the passenger side there is a fuel line (or something similar) close by so I had to be cautious. Second, not all coil compressors are equal. The first one I bought turned out to stick out several inches from the coil, and was too bulky to fit the coil and compressor into the space in the vehicle. The second set of compressors that I bought were considerably more compact and easy to use. If Strutmasters sells an appropriate compressor it would be nice if it were pushed strongly on their website.

The instructions could be improved by the inclusion of pictures that show a much larger area of the under side of the vehicle, with inserts that show the current pictures as magnified regions of the larger scale photo. I found that the compressors worked best when attached with two rings of metal between where I attached them and the end.

Customer service was awesome, and with a few simple improvements this could be and exceptional product.
