Great Struts and shocks easy install 2006 Ford F150
I had a mechanic install these struts, and the labor was much less to install a complete strut. My son and I installed some KYB rear shocks in less than 30 minutes on my pickup. The ride is fantastic. Glad I did all 4. Will be doing a 2003 Sport Trac with KYB.
For rears, I put boots DOWN. For fronts, the spring compressor usage is a "high anxiety" time. I found, with the fronts, I was able to turn the bottoms a little to help align with mount holes. I thought you had to have perfect alignment when re-assembling; you don't. Ride certainly improved, much less (if any) front nose dive on turns and the rear has less hoping.
