replacing shock absorber

Ok, so my prelude needs to get an alignment pretty soon but before I go get it done I wanted to replace a few parts. The NUMBER 7 part is pretty much blown out and dry rotted on each strut. If I replace just that part will it make somewhat of a difference with anything? After I replace that part I was going to go get an alignment done. here is a pic of part

If anyone has other sugestions or has replaced this part along with others let me know. I plan on doing this in the next week

Re: replacing shock absorber

If those are really as dry-rotted as you say, than your shocks prolly need to be replaced as well. And bumpstops, and bushings, and other parts that deteriorate.

Re: replacing shock absorber

Great help for car owners! Just want to add something. I suggest looking at Bilstien primarily (as thats what comes on TRD's). I'm not really looking to break the bank on it right now. Take note that the best shock abosorbers are made by the same company that makes the best springs, who also makes the best tires, and the best engine oil.
