I need to replace all the struts in my M, I have seen some brands here at my country like Monroe and Duralast from Autozone. I know that Monroe is known as good quality products manufacturer and against Duralast of course Monore is superior. At this time I don't want to spend a lot of money in this issue cause I'm planning to go later (maybe a year) for airstruts or airbags for my suspension, now the main question is, have you any experience about Duralats struts? Autozone offer a 4 years warranty, and actually it is an offer to buy 4 items for the price of 3 (4x3). I would like to take the decision today to get the offer. Normally in regular and normal times I buy all related parts in the USA but at this time it is impossible due covid-19. Thanks for you help.

These are what I have. They are a little more expensive, but much better than Monroe and Duralast. You may be able to find them cheaper on other websites (Amazon or RockAuto).

I think the answer depends on what you want to get out of them. I don't know the longevity of Duralast, or the ride comfort. If the ride comfort is good enough and folks report longevity more than 1 year, then it's a good option to hold you over until you're ready for the air suspension.

When it comes time for me to replace my struts, it will be with KYB GR-2 struts. Unless I have the cash and patience handy for going to air ride... which I doubt I will. :lol:
