Has anyone used or know anything about these two replacement suspension systems? They are only a fraction of the cost of replacing with OEM but are still pricy. They both replace the Advance electronic system and include an electronic bypass module so there are no warning light.

These are Strutmasters:


These are Arnott Industries:

Fraction of the cost? A full OEM set of two front assemblies and rear shocks cost me USD 700 taxes in.

The first link suggests over a grand before the tax. Besides the Strutmasters kit is notoriously bad. Basically, there is nothing better you can buy for the MDX that costs the same or less than OEM in terms of dampers. Why would you buy an inferior more expensive third party product over a cheaper OEM one? And resistors will run you about $20 at most.

This worked for me, for the past 4 years, during which I read about new Strutmasters Kits failing:
2007 - 2013 MDX ADS to non-ADS parts list and suppliers:



mouser dot com front 2 ea. 5 ohm 71-cp00105r000je14 resistors

Any Acura oem online discount parts supplier: front left assy 51601-stx-a06

2 ea front end links AC Delco #88876421

These aftermarket ADS are completely junk and ripped off. If you spend that amount of money on those guys you are much better off getting the real OEM from Acura.
