Default Quick strut assemblies??

Hello all I have an 09 impreza and I want to replace the struts. Does anybody know of a place I can pick up some quick strut assemblies? I've looked on Google and other places and have had no luck. I don't want to mess with compressing the springs and all that jazz so I figured I would see if there were any outlets that you guys know of for quick struts. Thanks

So you want the whole spring and strut package?

No one sells that outside of coilover assemblies. You might get the guys at RCE to send you a complete assembled package of their Bilstein/RCEspring/RCE top hat combo for extra money. In both of these cases you can't just buy 1, you buy the set for all 4 wheels.

But no one sells a new complete stock spec spring/strut combo. Your only real option is to hope someone has a used stock assembly for sale, and that they are willing to sell just the one side that you need.

Quick strut assemblies are offered for very common cars, and cars that commonly break springs. A lot of cars' springs won't last through two sets of struts.
Pull the strut assemblies and bring them to a shop, they should be able to swap in the new struts in a few minutes for not much money.
