The handling on my mkz has always been smooth for the most part (knock on wood). But now I’m hearing a noise coming from underneath it just about every time I tap or hit the brakes. So I took it to the shop for an inspection and sure enough there was a problem. The mechanic told me the suspension components were pretty much shot and that’s why I was getting all the noise and that I need to seriously consider replacing my front struts and rear shocks. Which I was somewhat hesitant because I thought it was going to be a rather costly expense until I started searching online for parts. I figure I’d save myself a little extra cash in addition to the cost of labor. While searching ebay I found a seller called apx auto parts. It seems they specialize in suspension parts. And they have what I need in stock http://apxautoparts....e-warranty.html. But I still have some time to think it over. Any advice?

Edit: Not sure how to post links with my phone, just look for strut/spring/mount assembly.

They might even have a package deal so you can get everything you need in one order at an even cheaper price

Rear shocks on first gen Fusion/MKZ are a royal pain in the butt to change...
