    Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Strut:

    Very easy to install. Took less then 3 hours for all 4 struts to be installed including changing of outer springs and covers. Keep in mind you will need a spring compressor when removing and installing springs on the struts.

          I purchased this for my mothers car. With 125,000 miles her struts were worn out and needed replacement. I am a novice mechanic and had no problem installing this product. The result was a 14 year old car that that rides as if it were new again.

            Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Strut:

            Easy to install, you will need to cut a slit in the mounting bracket for the brake line to remove and reinstall. This will keep you from having to disconnect the brake lines and having to bleed them. Be sure to make reference mark on the top of the strut mount and the top on the strut itself with a marker or something so that you can align and reinstall properly

                Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Strut:

                The strut is basically a stock replacement of one that has exceeded its lifespan. The install was and easy down easy up procedure with the simple snag of the brake line. The strut has a bracket welded to it to install the flex brake hose. I am not a fan of ripping apart aging brake lines to do this job so a notch was cut with a cut off wheel where the flex hose mounts to so 1/2 the bracket could be bent out of the way and bent back. After that removal and install were a breeze.
