Busted right front CV joint boot. Dirt got in and now "Houston We Have A Noise" especially when turning right. Wonderful.

Struts. I see some advertised with springs. What's the deal with that? Are some strut brands junk?

I can carry merely a brick in the truck without sagging. Best way to handle this? I see Firestone sells spring insert bags with tubing.

Are Monroe and Gabriel shock absorbers any better or worse than they were 20 years ago?

The car is anything but valuable, but it has only 75,000 miles on it, and still gets 28 mpg on Mexican gas (3.0 engine) Passed 2011 California smog way, way, way, under maximum emission limits. Like halfway in the scale.

This all seems depressing until I start pricing another car. Plus it may be homely but I like it. It's so ugly Mexican drivers are afraid of it and sicarios, gunmen, wouldn't be caught dead in it.
