Thoughts on struts after 50k? Living in pothole country (midwest) I've put on 50k on my ride (2010 Murano) I know I've got brakes that probably should get done (city driving) and so I was hoping to tighten up the suspension at least in the front. Brakes are a piece of cake (I've done more than my share of brake jobs) but I've only swapped struts once and replaced the whole assembly when I did (no spring compressor). Should I just wait until I really notice something? Maybe another 25k miles or so?
Are they leaking? If not, I'd just let it go till you notice anything -- handling, noise, or odd tire wear issues specifically. If you're going to change them out, I personally wouldn't bother with getting a spring compressor, just try to find strut assemblies without springs and take everything including your originals to a shop to have them switch over (i.e., you re-and-re the struts and all they do is swap springs for you).
