Time to service the suspension

My 07 has 125,000 miles on the original struts. The handling and ride are beginning to deminish a bit. I was pricing out the Monroe's and Ranchos. Does anyone have a recommendation on any other brands? Has any one tried strutmasters? They specialize in conversion kits to replace air suspensions but said they would give me a package price on a set of 4 of their spring/strut assemblies.

They also have these fairly simple to install boosters which I will probably purchase regardless of what brand strut I buy. With 5 kids plus all the crap you need for them, our Expy is usually fill to capacity. I think these boosters will he a blessing.

Check out 1aauto.com

I just bought a full set of coil overs from them for around $450 shipped! Very prompt shipping. These were the whole she-bang. Ford dealer wanted $200 /ea for just 1 front strut! Too much hassle for me....been there done that...f**k that!

Some minimal hand tools and about 5 hrs of work and I saved at LEAST $1000
