Replaced the shocks and struts on a 2001 Acura MDX with 158,000 miles. I don't know if the ones on the vehicle were originals since I bought the vehicle with 92,000 miles on it. The rear shocks were beefier than the Honda shocks. The front springs were very strong so I paid a shop $70 to swap the springs onto the new struts. Great ride and handling with the new shocks.
Coil-rites a long on stiffness but short on value

I bought the coil-rite system based on all the positive reviews. Installation was easy and it certainly does stiffen the coil spring suspension, however, I have not noticed any improvement in the vehicles suspension. The vehicle stays flat while turning with improved ride only under load. My opinion in short, I got 10 feet of blue PEX tubing and two small blue bags for $100+. Someone is making a killing selling a few pennies worth of plastic and the promise of riding on a cloud. No value at all.
