    Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

    perfect fit, better mounting system than stock (hooked tab where assembly mounts to steering knuckle eliminates ned to make sure bottom of strut is perfectly lined up) and great ride. shop quoted me $1400 for front struts and rear shocks. did rears, and front complete strut spring assembly in driveway with basic hand tools in about 2 hours for less than $300 dollars. helpful hint, if your old fronts are very bad, stabilizer link will be at too extreme of an angle to remove from strut. put a jack stand under a-arm and let weight of car onto it until stud on link lines up ind comes out. i hammered first one out and destroyed threads and had to re cut them. lesson learned, 2nd one was a breeze, in and out in about 30 minutes

      Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

      I bought both the right and left front, the description had both parts as "exact fit". Unfortunately that is not accurate. Overall they did fit, but the paint finish on them was different, one was gloss blue and one was kind of a dull metallic blue. Also, the brake like supports were in different locations and had to be bent out of the way of the pinch bolt to get it back in on the left side. Still, for the price they still fit OK on my 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SES.

          The part was easy to change and a perfect fit. The new car ride was restored. I would also recommend changing the sway bar links as well. There are relatively inexpensive and easy to change.
