    Guys, I think I've got struts on my 94 T.A. I'm used to trucks so I'm trying to learn. Which struts do I need?

    You have shocks, the 3rd gen had struts. What are you trying to do with the car?

    I'm needing to align the car and it squeeks when I go around curves and over bumps. I'm assuming the shocks are worn out. I thought that my year car had struts.

    Try to pinpoint where it is coming from, I mean the car is 14 years old and they're known to have squeeks and rattles even new. If you are going to stick with a stock ride height, I would suggest buying some Bilstein HD shocks for it, those should outlast the car. Before doing that, I would start replacing suspension bushings, do the easiest/cheapest ones first and see if it makes a difference. You can start by changing the sway bar mounts and end links to poly bushings, that is pretty cheap and easy to do, those tend to squeek when the rubber gets old.
