2nd Gen Rear Strut New Option

Postby my12by60 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 1:21 pm

I see oil on the rear struts and things are sounding a bit creaky when the car moves. These are now showing up online as a replacement option. Has anybody tried these out yet? Our 2000 Q has 133,000 miles on it. Are the springs still probably ok?

Other places indicate this is a correct part number. I would imagine your springs are fine being you are in AZ. The only thing to consider is that there are no aftermarket replacement fronts available. Infiniti had a rebuild kit available, I think, for ~$400 per side for the fronts but I am not sure they are still sold. If you really like the car, and want to keep it on the road, you may want to look into a set of coilovers. BC Racing, Megan and K-Sport (maybe Godspeed for really low budget) make some. The prices range on options.

Rear right strut is blown on my 99qt. Probably going to give these a try. Can't say no to the price with the lifetime warranty.
