1991 Acura NSX: New Struts

October 20, 2011

Well look what just showed up in the mail...

You've all seen the stick, our NSX struts are shot. We knew this when we bought the car. We also knew that unlike the previous owner, we couldn't live with the stick and set out to find a replacement set for both the trunk and glass hatch struts. The quote from the local Acura dealer came up to $264.89 for both. But NSX-owning friends who've just recently replaced their struts had a better idea. 

Two guys, unknown to each other, both suggested we head to NSX Prime (the Acura NSX go-to forum) and particularly this post rather than the dealer. Not only were these cheaper, but there's an additional discount for NSXP members who get the combo set. So we picked up two combo sets for a grand total of $216.00. Shipped. NSXP even has this handy guide for how to change them. Look for the install post soon. 

Why two? Well, to start, getting two of these was cheaper than getting one set from Acura and if they happen to fail we've already got a backup. Worst case scenario is that when we go to sell it next year we can say, "Hey, buddy, you know what, we like you...I'll throw in a spare set of struts."
