s14 Suspension Question

Heres my situation i am a college student that found a 95 240 se for $1000 and have had no real issues until now yesterday my right front strut blew. now today under the stress my left front blew so i am looking for a cheap solution. as i do not have a secondary car i rely on my car to get to my job and school. i found struts made by the company Stagg Link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/STAGG-SHS-4-...9RTOhh&vxp=mtr my question is could these last me a little while? i do not want to be bashed on or told oh just buy megans or get coil overs. any one who is in college would understand why i cant do that.

Just get a used stock replacement on craigslist

Buying parts on ebay is like buying garbage

I ran KYB GR2's on my S13 that I got used w/ eibach springs from a forum member and they did their job just fine. You can borrow tools from Advanced to swap the springs and keep your oem ones. The KYB AGX's are better but more money.

I did a quick search, looks like you can get them for about $350 all around. I buy certain parts on ebay, like an oil catch can or hose clamps, but struts\shocks are not one of them.

Use the bus or taxi (your buddies) until you can afford some entry level hardware. Not sure where you live, but working on a car in an apartment complex or on campus is a PITA. You only want to do the repair once.

/my 2cents

EDIT: Looks like KYB GR2's are listed as OEM replacement on rockauto. $50/piece
