SS and LS Struts are the same

So at work yesterday I was lookin at the shocks and struts of the '07 Cobalt. I was thinkin about putting the FE5 suspension from the SS on my LS. Well for the front at least...the aftermarket shocks are the same for the SS and the LS from Monroe which I thought was interesting. They come with a LTD Lifetime Warranty so I might get these when I get my lowering springs for the front. Oh btw they are around $90/strut. What do ya'll think? Dealer maybe a yr warranty....aftermarket Lifetime? Idk

Yeah so with Monroe they have the LTD Lifetime Warranty on them...so that's always a plus vs the dealership that may or may not warranty them out.

Well the receipt is in the computer system for 2yrs then it purges out of our system. All you really have to do..is keep up with the receipt...what I do is photocopy them cuz the other paper fades and keep the photocopied receipt in the glove box or w/e. If something happens to them...just bring them back and you get new ones. Just that simple.

SS and LS struts are not the same. They look the same... but are set up totally different. The "universal" struts that are available from a shop like mieneke would probably be a decent improvement for a LS... but not for a SS.

The computer system at Advance are saying the part numbers are the same for the SS and the LS I know that they are different from the factory but as far as aftermarket parts that we sell...they are the same. For an '05 Cobalt SS and the LS the part numbers are the same. For the SS and LS the part number is 72179 Monroe Sensa-trac.
