5K Strut Bearings
I'm about to do a front strut replacement on my 86 5K TQW and was
looking over the parts I've collected to do this, when something seemed
wrong with the replacement bearings I got.
The replacements don't have a real "bearing" per say. They are just a
metal plate with a rubber bushing in it. The bushing has a metal sleeve
for the cartridge tube.
I had always seen "real bearings" (like ball bearings with a race, etc)
in strut top bearings).
I asked the parts store where I got these, and they assured me that this
was right for the 5K. My question to this group is, is it? or are
these a cheaper version of what is suppose to be there?
I'd rather find out before I start than after I get everything apart on
