[DML] Re: doors sagging after replaced struts



A good illustration of why you don't take DeLoreans to Ford 
dealers. . . 

Look up the strut prices on any of the websites, they are about $140 
for all six and it's about a 15-minute job, with no tools, to replace 
all them if you don't have to adjust the doors. 

Sagging is not normal with new struts. If the doors hung completely 
closed all the way with bad or no struts, the torsion bars need to be 
adjusted. I wouldn't ask the dealer to do that either, there are 
several very expensive ways to mess that up. 

Where are you located?
