I just put new struts on the front of my 5. I did quick struts cause they were only a few bucks more than buying struts and strut mounts and I did not have to worry about getting them apart and back together correctly. I pulled the springs off the old struts after I was done. I will try to measure the old springs and see how they compare to the H&R CX-7 front springs. They might be an upgrade? If so I might consider the kit.
