    Default Don't buy the cheap Stagg SHS shocks from ebay

    Recently when I picked up my used mazda3 in April I decided I would replace the shocks so I gave the cheap ones littered all over ebay for all 4 fronts and rears $150+ shipping a try. well that was a mistake the left front is now pissing oil everywhere and the front right one is squeaking like an old mattress the rear ones seem to be fine still and this is with only 6000km on them you get what you pay for do not buy these unless you want to change out your shocks for a second time. I ordered a set of koni str.t to replace these pieces of junk I figured I would post this so no one wastes there time with these and yes I know better and to not cheap out on suspension parts the price is what made me give it a go totally not worth the effort.

    Lol OP is just trying sharing his experience so its all good.

    Sometimes something that is too good to be true usually is.
    For example a front left struts from Mazda are $173 and $165 or something + taxes so $150+shipping for all 4 is way too cheap so they will need to cut corners somewhere to make a profit

    I figured they were too good to be true I just wanted let others know my experience with these in case anyone wondered about them since they always show up on ebay search when looking for suspension parts you have try things to find out because you never know they could have been good.

    I ordered a set for my 2006 GT. Only issue that I've had with mine was a constant noise from the left rear. Contacted the purchaser after 8 months and they sent me a new one free of charge. So no complaints there. But I won't be buying another set. I've been on them for 1.5 years now and they are starting to get rougher and the car is getting sloppy again. But for a car that at the time we weren't keeping any more then 6 months, they were good.
