Has anyone had their front shocks wear out well before the rear struts? I have an 85 2M4 and an 85 GT and both have rear struts that appear to be okay and both had worn out front shocks. They both have the stiff WS6 rear suspension, could the stiff rear suspension be transferring more load to the front and wearing out the front shocks first?

Damn, didn't they have a 30 year guarantee?

Lol. I am amazed that the struts seem to be okay but I think they were replaced on both cars sometime in the past. I have only had the 2M4 since last June and the 2M6 since January.

Pretty common for shocks to wear out long before struts.
