Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Strut:

Ford Taurus wagon 2005. Need to raise entire front end. Need to lower subframe to get strut off and on.You need impact driver and large metric sockets. The sway bar extention bolt is a chalange also. Installaton not for the faint of hart with no mechanical abilities. Side note; you have to have both sides raised equally to remove sway bar extender. Also 2 bottle jacks work great for the sub frame support process. There is a learning curve. Ps 2 sets of spring compressors (4) make it much eaiser. Time 4-5 hrs in your yard. 1 1/2hrs on a lift. Check out Youtube for vidios to clue i=you in on process. The struts themselves are good and the least of the problem in the installation.
