Just a note of thanks for the great parts and excellent customer service. The parts were exactly as promised, however one part needed to be replaced due to a mounting misalignment from the manufacturer. The call to the customer service line was promptly answered by a very knowledgeable agent. She knew the part identity and could discuss the alignment issue of the part with confidence. To resolve the issue, a new replacement part was shipped the very same day and arrived promptly as promised. This purchase was handled with complete customer trust with an accommodating flare. Real "counter intelligence" is the secret.
- I purchased and installed all four a couple of weeks ago. The ride quality is much firmer now and handling and control is much improved over my originals (which had 65k miles and one busted front strut). The build quality looks much like OEM. I am told by a mechanic they they look like KYB. I was highly impressed with the fast shipping and service I received before the sale from APX. The only thing I would have done differently is purchase the strut mounts from APX. They have them, you just need to call for the part number. Mine were fine but I think it would have been better with new ones. I recommend having a tire shop do the mount and spring swap for you instead of renting a compression tool. It does not cost much and will save you time and possibly injury and aggravation. That is what I did and it was worth the $50. Took them about 30 minutes to do both.
I have a 1994 Toyota Camry and the front struts were not fitting on my vehicle. I was a little angry at first but I called APX to discuss this with them. Apparently on certain 1992-1994 Camry's there is some anomaly where a they actually use the 1995-1996 front suspension. They sent me the correct set immediately and this actually fixed the problem I was having. I could have easily gone on here and started trashing the parts for not fitting but I really appreciate the way they took care of me. They were really on top of it.
