      Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

      Bought this using an online coupon, bringing the price to ~100. For a strut with the coil spring included, that is a great deal. This went on my 2000 Honda Civic EX. This installed very quickly and was a direct OEM replacement. I had to separate the upper ball joint from the steering knuckle so I could get the new strut installed, but that was not a big deal.
