Default You Guys Wont Believe What I Did....

I got 13 Year Old Junkyard Saturn OEM Struts to fix that aggravating squeaking noise, I found a pair that looked pretty decent with minimal rust with the Saturn 210 numbers on them and swapped them out, The knuckle bolts have no adjustment for Camber like my originals, The car is quiet over bumps and when turning the wheel, I cant believe junkyard oem original struts fixed this problem, I have these new struts and mounts with the original springs that I have no idea what to do with now, I have no idea how to modify the bearing case.

If they're like 99% of aftermarket struts you gain the camber adjustment by drilling out the "extra" in the bottom hole to make it a slot. Can probably do it anyway, it'll just be harder if you have to drill through both layers.

No idea on the squeak, I only used KYB mounts when I replaced struts...never had a squeak.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

I'm about to do that myself. I really badly miss my original Delco struts. I hate Sensa-Trac struts, and all of the other aftermarket performance crap that makes your car hug every god damned pothole in the city.

Gonna pull me some low-mileage Delcos and enjoy that cush GM ride.



....And Sensa-Tracs -are- nice when it's over 80*F out. I drilled out one I had laying around from another car, and put the fluid in the freezer. When warm, it's very thin, and when in the freezer, it turns to a mild syrup. ...So unless it's warm out, you get a rough ride.
