Today I noticed that I have a blown strut on the rear left wheel. I think now is the time to buy some springs but I was wondering whether I should buy one OEM strut or a whole new set of struts, or maybe just two struts for the rear? I need help now. I also am not looking to pay a whole for the struts seeing as they arent as necessary...What do I do

Buy a pair, at least.<p>Rockauto has pretty good prices... check it out.<p>There are also some 5% off coupons floating around.

Since you will be disassembling the front suspension anyway... there's no point in NOT replacing the front struts.

^ +1 <p>You'll say to yourself "why didn't I just do this when I already had them off!?!" Don't be like me. Don't do that!
