This Genuine OEM auto part is a Passenger Side Front Strut for the 2015 Ford Escape. The part number is СУ6Z-18124-AK, also referenced as ast24654. Struts play a vital role in the suspension system, providing structural support and impacting ride quality. Over time, struts can wear out or become damaged, affecting the vehicle's stability and comfort. If there's noticeable vehicle bounce, nose dives during braking, or uneven tire wear, a strut replacement might be necessary. This specific strut ensures the vehicle's proper alignment and enhances the overall driving experience.
This is a brand-new genuine part in OEM manufacturer's packaging. It is the exact same part you would purchase from a new car dealership and is not an aftermarket component.
