Strut quality problems
I got a set of KYB struts for my Chrysler minivan this week. One of the struts top plate is welded on at an angle putting it almost against the piston. Although it is moving freely now, if any more lateral play develops it may rub against the metal cap. The piston should be more in a centered position.
I got these from tirerack and they were made in Mexico. There is a cheesy sticker poorly slapped on the side that says KYB. I don't think this type of work should be tollerated and I'm very dissapointed in getting this type of merchandise from what I thought was a good manufacturer.
Would you think this strut is OK to use or should I send it back ?
