A little off topic, but did it cause any problems? I am getting a set of old easystreets and just want to know if there is anything to fix it or if I would have to replace it if it comes to it.

this is what the old easysterrt struts did when the isolator washers went bad. The new ones don t do it, i had the same problem with my old ones.

never knew of a fix for them, i even got new parts and they eventually did the same thing. Easystreet redesigned them completely to fix the issue. I had a set of OEMs pillow mounts made for air ride on mine, fixed it alltogether till one locked up and had to replace then anyways.

no problems yet (fingers crossed) the washers are definatly getting worse. and i will likely pull them this winter and see if i can have them repaired. don't want to go to the new struts if i don't have too.

lol its ok, its a supercharger. It forces more air into the engine ( BOOST) more air+more fuel= more power. hoped this helped!

That's just one of the reasons why i ditched my airride. OEM did make a set of mounts for those struts that didnt fail in a month.




its an old concept. time for something new to take the reigns. - Z yaaaa
