Well I don't mind you disagreeing with someone else on my thread, but I'd prefer that you provide the solution rather than just call out others, you know?

I always expect my vehicles to last forever so far none of them have but that`s why I buy the best parts that I can afford so that I don`t have to replace them so often in case one of them does last forever or lasts at least another 10-20 years.
if I was planning only keeping a vehicle for a year I wouldn`t do any work on it as long as it kept running.

i know a thing or two
i know those struts are going to be complete #
unity automotive???? come on man
if you have a spring compressor
you can always take yours off and buy the first ones. take them to a shop and have them swap the springs. that shouldnt cost all that much
i bet it would save you as much as 50-75 per side....
figure 89 an hour labor. they could swap out all 4 in less than an hour no problem. probably closer to 30 minutes
if you buy that # off ebay they prob wont fit and if they dont fit they probably wont last
looking at the bottom of the strut mounts in the pics of the links i put up i can tell you that you will pay extra labor for the alignment. theyre gonna have to do some work to those holes to get your caster adjusted so dont expect to get the advertised prices of a 49.99 alignment.
dont fret though even if you didnt change your struts they just set the toe for that price anyway.
hell these days a lot of shop wont even mess with caster or camber adjustments if there is no factory call for it. i dont know about a 97 intrepid. when i was doing them (15) years ago we did the work. made adjustments to the holes. used shims. used air bladders it right. these days they just tell you they cant do it and send you on your way.
good luck man

I don't trust ebay for parts as a matter of preference. I get my parts from here.
