        The original shocks on our 2003 Buick Century had a MUCH better, smoother ride. These are horrible. Every little bump feels like your driving over a tree branch & the noise is aweful. My husband wished he didn't throw our old shocks away, he would have put them back on.

            • Q:

              The Econo Matic strut talks about charging and contains nitrogen do I have to put nitrogen in the struts every certain amount of years? How does that work and what does that mean?

                A:

                Hello Tommy, I will be happy to help you with that. The Econo Matic struts are sealed and do not require a recharge. If these shocks fail do to normal wear and tear, then they will need to be replaced so no maintenance is required.

            • Q:

              I see two versions of the complete struts for my 2000 Pontiact GP SE. I am confused about something. When looking at the front struts, are those being bought in pairs because I don't see a right and left like in the rear struts.

                A:

                Yes, you are right. The front strut assembly on your 2000 Pontiact GP SE is the same on both the left and right side with the Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly - Part No. 181661. However rear requires 2 different struts - Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly - Part No. 181662L (Left) and Monroe Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly - Part No. 181662R (Right). For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto store and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

              Lets say I decide to change out one strut at a time, Would that cause any problems wit my vehicle?

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                Shock absorbers and struts are designed to dampen spring oscillations as the suspension goes through jounce and rebound. This prevents unwanted body gyrations and helps keep the wheels in contact with the road. If one shock or strut is shot, chances are its companion also needs to be replaced. So, struts should always be replaced in pairs. You should never replace only one strut or shock for safety reasons.

                For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
