Q: Does "Strut Assembly Replacement (Front)" work item on yourmechanic.com include work to reuse existing springs?

Does "Strut Assembly Replacement (Front)" labor item on yourmechanic.com include work to reuse existing springs or that is an extra labor item?

There will be additional labor to replace the strut cartridge over replacing the strut assembly since the old strut would need to be taken apart and spring transfered to new strut. You will need to talk to customer service for this service since not all mechanics will do this work and will only replace the assemblies as a complete unit due to safety concerns of compressing springs in the field.
