Feed back on new easystreet struts

Other than the extra 1" of height complaint Ive found in searches, how are these performing? Just had to buy replacement for my old design due to a broke strut, and i got the new ones from air lift.

yeah i about broke myself on car parts last few weeks, had to buy these however since i broke one of them. Cant be having a non drivable show car lol. Called up Mike a gauge magazine, and he made me a deal on them, he said they were that last ones the air lift had, apparently they are discontinued.

They are very pretty, almost dont wanna install them they smell good too lol.

Bet ur azz im gonna raise the perches, Im gonna install them as they are first to see how i like them, take measurment and go from there. Im looking forward to using the sleeve bag and the new mount design. I'll have my OEM mounts left over if they work out.

got it out for a rode today, new design rides 100% better than my old ones. Altho 2" from the ground is unacceptable

Looks nice. would you be intrested in selling the other old strut, I had one blow out and just need one?

Do you just need the bag or the whole strut? I have the bag that is still good from the broken strut, as far as the strut itself the mounts have been relocated and will not match your other.

damn, i need a strut, I've got a good bag myself, but my adjuster shot through the side of my strut housing and I haven't been wanting to drop the cash for 2 front struts.

My struts pop when i first fill them from layed out. the air spring seems to go past the taper on the bottom and pop back when you fill it

Started cutting today.
Freshly removed tab, smoothed out the leftover welds.

Starting to mod the tab mount to make room for the adjuster knob in its new position.

Notch completed.

Now we have room, just gotta get a burr bit to grind down the left over weld in the inside. Used a rotary cutter to cut the weld on the inside.


The new position will be 2"-2.25 up the strut body. Going to tack it in with my MIG and mock it up to make sure everything clears then have it profesionally TIG stitch welded better than new

ok got my welding done tonight. TIGed it up similar to the original MIG tacks.

Good CV clearance.

Test fitted, everything clears .

Thats better.


All in all the perch was raised 2", made it flush with the bottom of the strut. Actually just like the old version of the struts, flush was one inch higher. Tomorrowill remove them again and clean them up and hit them with a coat of charcoal Krylon Hamm-R coat to closely restore the stock finish.

Im getting good at removing struts from J's lol.

Used my wire wheel attachment and removed most of the old paint. Removed the knob again and masked over the hole and taped up the air bag.

Ended up using Duplicolor wheel paint in metallic graphite since i couldnt find Hamm-R. Good thing too because its a damn near perfect match! Then followed up with the matching clear, on of the best rattle can clears i have used BTW.




Looks like it never happened .
