Hi guys,
I bought an '06 and need to replace the shocks/struts. The struts and springs currently on it look like those pre-assembled strut spring assemblies and not the factory coil springs. I have not had good experience with those in the past. I would like to replace the struts and reuse factory OEM springs. Could someone here that knows for certain their MDX has the factory coil springs on the front struts possibly take a coule pictures for me?

Thanks

This is all I've got (of the original strut, anyway). As you can see, if you DO decide to keep the original springs (which is what I did, since I too like the factory springs better than aftermarket), you'll need to use every inch of the spring compressor's range. Look for telltale paint markings on the springs that (IIRC) match the markings on the strut mount. Aftermarket springs probably won't have paint markings.
