These strut assemblies replaced the original factory struts after 122,000 miles. They were fairly easy to install. On a 2006 Explorer the front upper ball joint nut has to be removed to get the old struts out and the new ones in, but other than that it was very easy. The old struts did not seem that bad, but I did notice one of them had a small leak. The new Gabriel struts definitely improved the ride and "tightened" up the feel of the vehicle. Definitely worth the money.

at first the shocks were bad,than someone told me I installed them upside down,and after that it was a little better, and another guy said I had the fronts on the back and the rears on the front. so after all that, the shocks work great. now I'm going to change the water pump in my fuel tank.
