The wife's car (2002 Subaru Outback) is ready for new struts and I'm trying to determine the correct part set. TireRack, surprisingly, lists two different sets of front struts. One set is for "models after 6/02 only" and the other is for "models before 5/02 only."
Here's the question: how do I determine which pair I need?
I have the VIN number and I've confirmed that the vehicle is a 2002 (thanks VIN) but there's no month information there. Is there another way to determine which part is necessary?
