    Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

    Did some cross reference and found this fits my 2002 Ford Explorer even though advance didnt list it when I searched. It was way cheaper than parts the website recomended. Did take about 3 hours to install, not as easy as many instructions claimed but very doable.

      Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

      Bought these to replace broken rear coil springs on my 2002 Explorer XLT. Buying a complete strut/spring pre-assembled unit was only SLIGHTLY more expensive than buying the springs alone. Avoided any need for spring compressor (dangerous!) and replaced worn struts at the same time. No problem installing with hand tools only - you'll need a mix of metric and SAE sizes, and GET A WRATCHETING 13mm box wrench for those top 3 nuts on the strut -- you'll be SO happy you have it! Helps to have a friend to help pry down the lower arm to free the old strut. All in all not a bad job and these Monroe units seem solid.

              had to research the pictures online to make sure it was the whole assembly.cant go wrong for the price and seem like good quality parts would recomend if only needed to replace the springs make process easier takes about 3 hours with basic hand tools and would recomend dropping whole bottom a arm makes taking out and putting in assembly so much easier.

              • Q:

                What's the quality difference between the econo-matic and the monroe quick complete struts? I see 1 yr. warranty vs. lifetime warranty, how long are each expected to last? Any difference in ride quality? Any difference in installation procedures?

                  A:

                  The Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly features a Sensa-trac strut which is the best of its strut lines. The Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly on the other hand features a regular economy line strut. So the Quick strut line is quicker, safer and easier to install compared to the Econo-Matic strut assembly. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.
