So you are replacing struts, you could replace the strut mounts and springs but many times you dnot need to on a Fiero as they dont rotate like many cars with front struts. The springs I have not replaced either. Even if they are tired it just means you are little lowered.
Otherwise its a good time to clean and maybe paint stuff in that area. Check out suspension bushings, etc.
The springs are out, since I can't locate any non-lowered versions for the '88 and I'm not up to cutting anything. Strut mounts however... is there any way to determine if they've gone bad without disassembling everything? I've got no garage and I'm not able to leave my car in a state of un-roadworthiness for more than a single night. And at more than 50 bucks a pop I'm hesitant to replace it "just because".
I'll try to paint the springs at least, they look terrible at the moment. Would rustoleum rubberizer undercoating be up to this task?
