UGH blown magride.

So I discovered today (I know this has been beaten to death) one of my magride strut/shock (lets not argue about terms here) is leaking. I am looking at replacements now and discovered that rock auto is by far the best price. Has anyone purchased these from them? Also how hard of a job is it really to replace them without a lift? I watched a video on replacing rear struts on a normal (non ZL1) Camaro and it did not look that bad. side question. Could having a bad strut cause an intermittent "service suspension" alert?

Subscribed. I think my rears are going out because they are making noise :(

I did mine a few weeks ago in my garage, while also still recovering from knee surgery. I took two days to get it accomplished with my limited mobility/working positions. The second day went by much quicker as I had figured out how to de-pin the connector and tools needed. I also had to drive the wife to/from work which also shortened my work day. If you are use to working off jack-stands, you should be fine. I never got a service suspension warning and mine had been out for awhile.

I ordered from Rockauto with no issues. You can do it on jack stands as I did. You will need a de-pinning tool for the rears. They have an electrical connector that goes through the top hat. Unfortunately the hole is too small to put the connector through.

You can just pick up a scribe at any Advanced Auto and the smallest needle nose pliers (Long and skinny as you can find to remove the purple locking pin inside)
