My car is a 2000 Corolla…this past week I got brand new complete Gabriel ReadyMount struts which included the springs, struts, and mounts already assembled. These struts were direct fit and replacement of OE struts for my Corolla.
Now when I look at my car from a level surface…it looks too high. Like the space between the top of the tire and the arch of the quarter panel has increased by a lot. Also, the ride is somewhat rough…it looks like the actual strut itself never gets to “work” because the Spring is too high and stiff.
Will the increased height and stiffness wear out the other suspension components?
