Front strut (shock) replacement on a third generation Acura TL. (Similar procedure for most Acura and Honda vehicles.) Acura does offer complete strut assemblies for purchase. In other words, you can purchase the strut assembly as one complete unit; as opposed to buying the strut only and transferring the spring from the old part to the new part. Purchasing the strut assembly as one unit saves quite a bit of time and provides the assurance all parts are 100% brand new. Common symptoms of a bad strut – leaking oil from the damper unit, worn upper strut bushings, cracked springs, etc.
