Talking New shocks and struts

Just installed new shocks and struts. Bought the Gabriel Ultra G-Force packagee came with 2 ready mount struts and 2 shocks for the rear. I cant believe how much better the car handles. Its night and day difference. The car actually corners now lol

Congratulations! Just be sure to keep an eye on them for rust. I don't know how much salt they use in your neck of the woods, but I've seen lots of posts on various forums about Gabriels rusting out fairly quickly.

Aspire to inspire before you expire.

I've not tried many brands because I landed on SenSen a few years ago and am hooked. They were very reasonably priced and the ride seems about right for a PT.

I've done both the quick-strut and strut-only versions and while each has its advantage, I kinda like knowing the front springs were from the factory. But that's just me.

I did put a set of no-brands on my wife's car a few years back, but they were way too stiff for me, even with a fairly soft tire.

Oh, and SenSens are on all three of my current PTs, and the car I recently sold wore them for well for almost 3 years with only a bit of surface rust on the rear shock welds.

My 2 cents.
