View Full Version : Strut question

Are our fronts and rears MacPherson struts? I am working on a custom suspension setup and I am a pretty big suspension n00b. I searched but could not figure out what our rears are. Thanks AZ

mcpherson is just the style of strut, where the shock is mounted inside of the coil spring

yes i believe both our front & rears are mcpherson's, they are self contained center strut & spring that can be removed as a complete unit from the car without the coil flyin all over the place... that is until you remove the top strut hat w/o a spring compressor.... fly baby fly!

i think our cars have McPherson struts.
McPherson struts are the ones that bolt to the knuckle and dont have upper control arms.(i think...)
sometimes they are part of the steering system.
