Hello, I am new to this forum. I purchased the front strut assemblies (right and left) at Autozone. It turns out that the new strut assemblies were about 1 3/4" shorter than the originals. I called them and they said those were the correct ones. I returned them. Buying them at the dealership is very expensive and I am trying to save some $$$. Do you have any recommendations ? thanks for your help !!!
