  5. to get new spring or to not

    Hi. My 03 envoy has 170k and original struts. Do I keep the springs or buy the combo strut set with springs? It looks easier to change with the springs already on. I assume i can rent the compression tool at Autozone. My concern is the new springs could be sub standard. Now, are Sensen...
