2014 Factory Trailering & struts

My 2014 Enclave has the Factory Trailering Package.

The Dealership is telling me the front struts need replacing.

Is there a particular strut that came with the Factory Towing package that would be different than if the Enclave did not have factory trailering ?

Is there a particular strut part # I should make sure they are quoting ?

thank you

There is no particular strut--- based on the towing package.
BUT there is a particular strut- based on the size of the wheels.

18 and 19 inch wheels use the same OEM strut.
20 inch wheels use a different OEM strut.

If you want to go with ACDELCO / GM original equipment- they have struts for wheel codes QCW, QLW, QUP.
or another with just QQD

it would be listed under the parts.

for example---

QQD-20 inch

Or you can buy aftermarket- and see if they make a reference to wheel size---- or its a 1 size fits all

I used Bilstein B4 OEM replacement struts. Very high quality and made in Germany. Much better than the made in Korea GM OEMs.
