        Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

        This is the best way to go. This is so easy to replace i think I could walk my fourteen year old son through the install. The ride was greatly improved and the ride height was restored. The PT Cruiser did not look like I was going to hit every curb that I had to go up or down.

            Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

            One thing to remember with installing any strut or Shock is do not fully tighten them down until the suspension is under a load. You can do this by putting a jack stand under the suspension once the car/truck is raised. Then slowly lower the vehicle allowing the jack stand to support the weight of the vehicle while compressing the shock/strut. Once a load is on suspension you can fully tighten them down. If you tighten the shock/strut while it is fully extended (not under a load) you might notice a thumping sound while driving.

              Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

              Bought a pair of these for a 2003 PT Cruiser with 141000 miles. The old springs were sagging and the struts themselves were worn out. The new assembly is very convenient and easy to install with simple hand tools. These should be good until the car dies. Install time was less than an hour each side using a floor jack, jack stands, and hand tools. The ride is noticeably improved. Handling is better but haven't done an alignment as of this writing so that needs reviewed after. Great value for price!

                Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

                Ready to go right out of the box. I took about an hour each to install. Very happy not to have to deal with compressing the springs and deal with a rusted nut on top of the strut. A local mechanic wanted almost $600 to do the job.
