I finally got the front struts replaced with Tokico Illuminas,really made a difference in the ride. Was going to take it to a shop in KC who wanted $225 to do it but called a local guy that worked on our Toyota and he only charged me $80 and was done in a little over 2hrs. I thought that was a bargain. Anyway I am really pleased with them. I think I found a good mechanic for the things I feel not confident in doing.
