Where to find complete strut for a 2008 buick allure 18" please let me know. Rod Porter
GM doesn't show a cartridge for any of the suspensions including the FE4 sport suspension, see the link below.For the OP, enter your VIN on a US based GM dealer (such as here: Genuine GM Parts | GM Parts Outlet ) that sells parts to figure out the part number for your front struts/strut cartridges. I would want KYB struts myself but there does seem to be some confusion as to whether they are compatible with your larger wheeled car or not; RockAuto lists them as excluding 17" and above wheels while TDotPerformance shows the same KYB SR4089 as being compatible with ALL submodels of your car? One might call the manufacturer for clarification (particularly for what front strut CARTRIDGE you need in your case; again, have the factory part number for an interchangeability search) but it also appears Delco parts are available (but be mindful to order at least their OE level; I would go for KYB only because they may likely be better).
When you do figure out what you need; given yours is a W-Body I believe you can replace just the strut cartridges from under the hood. This means you can keep and not even have to touch nor remove the original springs, which are probably fine, and not have to bother with an alignment and all that jazz.
