Re: Help With Rear Suspension After Collision

Is there any way to post/link photographs without divulging too much personal information?

And the splines do not look as robust as the O.E. axle

Re: Same color red over the years?

I’ve seen a lot of red that had peeling clear coat.

Re: Finding a decent Saturn is getting harder . It's seems

I would think you would be getting what you see. Oil consumption unknown.

Re: KYB Excel-G 234056

Answer is, yes, I plan to replace the front struts before I drive the car.
