Just bought a 06 eclipse gs 2.4l and I am trying to replace the struts all around and was wondering what were the best quick struts to get? And where to get them from. Thanks. I did look for a thread on quick struts and stuff but could not find one.

If your springs are fine, I'd just take out the strut, you'll need to rent a strut compressor from Auto Zone for like $55 if you don't already have one. Raise the car, take out the struts (Rears come out without much hassle, not sure about the fronts). Use the spring compressor to compress the coil and remove the top nut, the strut mount comes out and everything comes apart. Install new strut inside springs, install new strut mount, put everything back together, reinstall.
