ST165 Struts and Rotors

Postby JohnNK » Thu Jan 10, 2013 6:56 pm

I need to replace the rear rotors and all struts on my ST165. I have a modest budget. Any recommendations or advice is greatly appreciated.

Front struts are easy to replace, you can get them from Rock Auto. I recently purchased a pair of these: MONROE Part # 73238.

Rear's require cutting and welding to get an insert in there, they are sealed and I don't believe anyone sells the entire strut assembly.

Rotors, you can get whatever fits your budge from Rockauto.com or spend a bit more and get some Brembo blanks and hawk pads.

There is a difference between the shock and strut replacement.
I dont know any company that makes a full strut for the rear, they almost all require some good cutting, and a collar welded on.
Go with something nice like a koni or kyb AGX you wont regret it

btw, Monroe confirms that those struts linked higher up on eBay DO NOT WORK on the AllTrac.

My bad. I just did a quick search and found those. Are the rear struts on our tracs really that different?

I would like to know the difference too cause they look pretty damn close to be the same.
