      I GOT THE RIGHT PART THE FIRST TIME, EASY TO FIND AND EASY TO ORDER, RESIVED IN A TIMELY MANER, AND WAS ABLE TO FIX THE CAR FAST. my Corydon store was even helpful with rental of a spring compressor, so I could get it fixed quick.

                      These didn't replace the old ones without work (lots of spacers). I wouldn't buy them again.

                          Installing this Monroe Gas-Matic Strut - part# 81293 depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part.

                        According to the review, the Rear Gas-Matic Strut by Monroe needed a lot of spacer. Do you have any recommendation what spacers to use, and how many?
