  • Drivers front strut

    Hi,
    Years ago I was tagged at summit point and the drivers strut got a kink in it. The tire then rubbed the upper part of the strut due to the extra neg camber from the kink in the middle of the tube. I never threw it out. Does this have any value to anyone? I do not have an extra tie rod assembly that bolts to the bottom. Worse case I’ll save the ABS ring and chuck it. Let me know if there is an interest.
    thanks
    David

    The forged knuckle/stub axle has value!
    The bent tube can be removed from it and replaced with a new tube.

          The tube can be replaced but is labor intensive, I did on one I bought a while back and it requires skills and you need a machine shop to do it.
