When purchasing Strut Parts or Struts, You must identify the manufacturer. The name is cast into the housing. We stock Imaginative Manufacturing Strut Assemblies and parts such as Strut Sub-Assemblies, Ball Joints, Bearings, Springs, Caps, Tie Rod Inserts, etc. We do not stock Stealth struts however, our Struts do fit on Stealth. For more info about our Stealth parts please see our Stealth Parts Page.
WHO IS YOUR STRUT MANUFACTURER?
When you order a Strut Assembly you will receive 2 bearings, ball joint, 140 lbs. spring, shock, housing, and hardware. It will arrive just as in this picture.
NOTE: The strut housing has 2 pinch bolts. These bolts should NEVER be OVERTIGHTED! The shocks are held in the strut casting by other pieces besides the pinch bolts alone. Overtightening of the pinch bolts WILL damage or break the strut castings.
Our kits are designed to be used with 22" tires and wheels with a 3" negative offset.
Our camber is not adjustable.
Using taller tires can damage the camber and other parts of the strut.
Example of 3" negative offset is to accommodate for strut housing.
Insert the Tie Rod End into the strut from the bottom side as shown in the picture below. This may help if you have tires larger than 22" with a negative wheelset of 3" to keep struts from being damaged.
With a rat tail file gently smooth the groves in the casting of the strut. Then Reinsert the Bushing/insert into the strut from the bottom side. Opposite of how it came from the factory. We will not assume responsibility for any damages that may occur from any modifications you make.
This is something you can do at your own risk. We do not advise you to do this or not to do this. If you have tires larger than 22" you can remove the bushing/insert that comes in the strut casting by gently taping it out.
