"quick strut" assembly

4 posts in this topic

I recently went to a new garage (I just moved two states so I no longer have "a guy").  I know I need new front struts.  He quoted me $375-$400 each side and said they would use a quick strut assembly.  You know, the all in one deal.  I wanted to check prices for myself but cannot seem to find this part that matches my car.  Is there a sister car size they use or was this guy making stuff up and going to jam something that doesn't work in there?

What year Spark? Quick strut assembly means he will be replacing the whole strut assembly with spring and top mounts. Its a faster and easier job because he doesn't have to disassembly the spring and mounts from the strut. Sounds like a bit much though. Here is a couple listings I found. New are obviously a better choice but the used ones with low miles will work too.

Alright, so I found an assembly for a Chevy Aveo.  Does anyone know if these parts can be used in a 2014 Spark? It seems like they're a very similar vehicle.

Cshine, no unfortunately they do not fit. Also goes for the brakes and rotors.
