    Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

    This is not direct fit. There is no nut welded on the lower fork, or even included. Be prepared to make a trip to the hardware store.

    • Q:

      The strut assembly does not have mounting nut on bottom of strut. Do you have a recommended nut to secure strut suspension bolt ?

        I'm happy to help, Paul! The proper lock nut for your 1996-2000 Honda Civic rear Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly fork bolt is an M12x1.25mm lock nut. Dorman offers multiple part numbers that fit this description: 878-412, 784-779, 433-012 and 44065.
