Hood struts for 95 325is original manufacturer?
I'm back to trying to bring this car back to life. After replacing the MAF, various vacuum hoses, correct plugs, etc., it's running very well once again. Believe it or not, it had Autolite single pole plugs in it.
The hood struts (shocks) are shot, so I bought new ones from a local import parts store. I spent about two hours trying to make them work. Long story short, the "ears" on the clips are too short to reliably stay in the groove on the post. Taking them back tomorrow. BTW, they were made in Turkey.
I want to purchase struts that will work well but am not willing to get hosed by my local dealer. Getting old sucks. Makes you want easy and cheap.
My question is can anyone tell me who the original manufacturer is for these struts? And, are either the Stabilus or the Meistersatz brands OK?
