Strut Installation Made Easy with the Rancho® RS5000®X Loaded Strut Assembly

What is a Strut Assembly?

Designed to simplify the installation process, a strut assembly is a convenient option for replacing a strut. Including everything needed for a strut repair, a loaded strut assembly includes:

  • Upper strut mount
  • Strut bumper and boot
  • Spring seat
  • Insulators
  • Coil spring

Reasons to Choose a Strut Assembly Instead of Bare Strut

Depending on your application, there may be strut assembly and a bare strut available. There are many reasons why a complete strut assembly may be the right choice for your repair.

Saves Time – A strut assembly is faster and easier to install than a bare strut. For starters, you don’t have to worry about sourcing other parts – everything is in a single component ready to install on the vehicle. When it comes to performing the repair, a strut assembly simply bolts on while a bare strut needs to be rebuilt before installation.

No Special Equipment Required – Since a strut assembly comes with a new coil spring, the repair doesn’t require a spring compressor. Installing a bare strut reuses the original coil spring, necessitating the use of a spring compressor to complete the repair.

New Components – With all-new components included with a strut assembly, you don’t have to worry about the coil spring or any other part wearing out before the new strut does.

Restores Performance – Installing a strut assembly restores the vehicle to factory ride height to help maintain vehicle control and improve steering.
