<< Funny you mention it.  I talked to a guy at VCHC
 who said he tried the cheaper 4K strut bearings, which
 only lasted for about 6 months.  I would stay away, as it
 is penny wise and pound foolish.

I agree.  From what I hear, if you're going to put new strut bearings in an
urq, go with the originals (PN# 857-412-323-B, I believe).  I spoke with 2
q-heads this past weekend who need them, and the one has had the same
short-lived experience with the 4kq strut bearings.  It's enough work to go
through without having to have to do it all over again after 6 mos-2 years.
