seen quite a few pictures of 2nd gen front struts snapped on here and got to looking at the differences between the 1st and 2nd gen front struts. Why the different design???
took these pics from another thread, but all second gen struts snapped in the questioned location. (i realize the poster of these pics claimed they all were due to running spacer lifts causing the extra stress to the strut, but i have not seen any first gen struts like this)
