        Comments about Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly:

        Had to get new front strut's due to my Grand Prix handling poorly wail driving. My car sat very low in the front. So low, i would scrape the bottom of my front bumper coming out of store parking lots.
        Im not a mechanic of any sort, or have any experience. But my first attempt on dissembling my strut's and installing was pretty straight forward. Id just recommend having all the proper tools available at the time of dissembling.
        Iv had them on for about three weeks now. The ride seems more better. I have stopped grinding my front bumper when coming out of store parking lots; since the front end has been lifted due to the new strut's.
        I'd recommend these to any one with a Grand Prix

                    I installed these on my mom's 02 Impala and was impressed with the fit for the low cost. They have been installed for about 6 monthes and car rides well. The car is only used for around town light duty so not sure of any heavy duty use capablilities. I am hoping to find a comparable set for my Buick that I use for towing a small trailer so heavy duty will be tested if I find a comparable strut.
