Gabriel eBay front struts

Has anybody used these?
I'm really just looking for a quick fix right now. My front end is bouncing like crazy!

Re: Gabriel eBay front struts

Sorry I probably should've put this in the "Stance" category

Re: Gabriel eBay front struts

They are generic replacement struts. Not suggested to pair lowering springs with them. Though, people have . . .

Get them for now.

Re: Gabriel eBay front struts

Actually, the Prelude is already low enough to be honest. I agree with your old man. You're probably like, "look at that huge wheel gap!" well, slam the car like I have and you'll understand what it means to drive all funny over speed bumps and stuff. :(

If i did it all over again, I would never have lowered my car; 4 times

Re: Gabriel eBay front struts

Hahahahaha. My dad is a very smart man. He's all about efficiency.
That is almost EXACTLY what I was thinking actually. haha. I never really wanted to slam my car. I just wanted it low enough so it didn't look awkward if you know what I mean.
I especially can't slam it because the roads near me are just awful. A new pothole appears every day!

Re: Gabriel eBay front struts

When I bought my car it was lowered, and that was the 2nd thing I got rid of. I think ludes are definitely low enough, especially if you live in an area with bad roads like me. I picked up a set of oem replacement struts from parts geek for pretty cheap, and I got my springs from napa for a reasonable price.
