      Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

      Can be tricky installing the new struts. The neon to plate is on an angle and your new strut is not yet. There are 2 stud and one bolt that will be added from the trunk last. I installed the strut and used the new crimp nut to hold in place and replaced them with the original nuts to help pull the strut up in place. I used a small tappered punch to get the 3rd outer bolt hole in line while tightening the 2 inner nut to pull the strut up. Then installed the bolt down through the top of strut plate. Take you time and do not strip the bolt or thread trying to force it to start. Install the bolt into the strut and remove before mounting so you know the thread should start easy. (option)Just take your time and use the tools to get all the bolts in line and tighten.

          Fit perfectly. Great price. Great construction. Car handles much better. (200K on original struts.)
          Must use a tapered punch to align the hole for the bolt. Other 2 are studs, and they self align. Had to adjust the rotational alignment of the top and bottom mounting points. Not a big deal.
