Having some issues on my 04, and it appears that's I've got a partially collapsed passenger front strut (almost an inch less wheelwell clearance on passenger side).

Was recommended the KYB ABX for the adjustability, but don't find an application fitting the 04... is there one that's a direct replacement?

If i go with the G series, do they make a assembled unit, spring and all, so I won't need a spring compressor?

Side question partially related... Saw the Neuspeed strut tower brace that fits this, but it appears it already has some sort of factory brace... is the Neuspeed a replacement, or supplementary? If it's a replacement, what's the benefit other than looks over the factory unit?

Trying to upgrade on the cheap (without being cheap) as my overtime has gotten spotty and also have tires needed before snow starts flying...

I'be already been warned away from the Monroe and such... And Bilstein is a little more than I really want to spend just on a daily driver with light off road use.

Yeah, Monroe was the only ones I saw that came as an assembly, and I've not read much good about them...

If you have enough dough get a Bilstein 2nd would be Monroe last is KYB you may ask why, well in my experience KYB ain't that durable/reliable as with this 2 brands.
