Have you lowered the car? If not, and you still are under your mileage (under 60,000kms) then yes, you have warranty on them. If your lowered the car, no warranty gone.

Yeah I assume the struts are part of the 3 year/36k mile warranty (so I guess 60k km?)

Although... "wearable" items like brake pads and such aren't, do the struts fall into that category?

No they are covered LiL PZEV...... as far as my understanding is.

Plus there's that spring recall thing going on also. Not sure if that's related to this but suspension parts being connected you never know.

It'll be tough to find a decent price in Canada here. Check with Mitch at www.zx3tuning.com
