Re: [DML] Struts



Hi, I bought a set of new struts earlier this year. The temp was 55 and one door drooped lower than the other, so I switched them and the opposite door drooped. The vender says I need to adjust rods but I  think I got a odd match set of struts. Do  you think I should ask for a repacement strut before I fool with door rod adjustments? Should I send them back for refund and buy temperature adjusted struts? I'm in Mich. and the temp went to 55 and they are drooping already. Looks really low tech when getting out somewhere. One more thing, I had a chance to switch my new struts with another D owner  and  his worked fine on my car. Why don't all newer cars' struts droop in cold weather?  Thanks for listening, any advice would be helpful, lacy
