New question Randall. I need rear struts on my 200 Taurus.

Customer Question
The problem that I have...
New question Randall. I need rear struts on my 200 Taurus. The problem that I have is that my struts don't have a bracket for the stabilizer link, but there seems to be only the struts with the stabilizer link bracket. do you know what this means? I even
went searching at the junk yard and out of all of the Taurus" that I saw. There was only one other one there with the same set up as mine. Can I just attach the ones with the bracket and just not attach the stabilizer link. Or is mine some special set up or
something? I don't have a SHO or anything. Could this be the police or taxi package? Even still I don't think that those work either. Please help!!!

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
