Acura in signature, has original OEM factory struts/shocks/springs -- would like to go with full strut assembly. What do use BITOGs fine folks recommend. Do not want something real cheap but neither do I want something mind boggling expensive. Please help me out. Would be for front and rear.

I see they have different price ranges for the KYB -- which ones? Went on Amazon -- no KYB strut assembly fits on my Acura??

Just installed Monroe Quick struts on a 2010 Mazda3. Work great.

Available at Rockauto for about $90.

Honda actually sells OEM quick struts for your TL. About $200 each

Does the TL have the same suspension as the Accord? If so, you can get Accord quick struts. There are more choices that way. For example, KYB makes quick struts for the Accord but not the TL If not, there's still Monroe.

My choice in quick struts would be
OEM (if you can afford them) > KYB > Monroe

Usually they don't even make it to the end of the warranty period.

The MGM suspension was designed with technology from the 1950' s.
Therefore it has significantly different suspension design and needs than an Acura.
