These new all in one struts were a perfect fit and beyond easy to install. No messing with springs, clamps, etc. Changed the strut in less than 20 minutes. High quality part and made the van handle and drive like new even though its almost 10 years old. Best thing to do is spray all the bolts the night before with penetrating oil and they come off like a dream. Definitely worth the few extra bucks for the entire assembly and the lifetime warranty! Would absolutely do this again with this all in one strut assembly!

Guys.... Ok, so I installed this KYB after one of the assemblies blew out on a huge speedbump at daycare. After installing it I torqued down the top mounting bolts and took it for alignment. All was good, then a squeak and knock developed at every bump. I looked at EVERYTHING. The nuts didn't come loose and I couldn't figure out what was happening. I saw a post elsewhere that suggested spraying some lube on the rubber. Well, I tried it and it didn't work. Then I decided to try again. I tightened the nuts another half turn, then I bathed the top of the mounting surface in spray lube. Then I started shaking the van up and down as hard as I could, then sprayed more lube. All the sudden the pitch of the squeal/knock changed. I kept going with a third dousing and kept shaking the van up and down as hard as I could. The squeak and knock stopped and now it is silent as if it is brand new. It was so maddening that I had to share my solution. Good luck guys.

      Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

      The availability of Monroe struts influenced my entire purchase at Advance auto. I have been using Monroe shocks and struts as a professional mechanic for many years. These are nice in that you get everything so that you do not have to take it back apart to replace a top plate or a spring or a rubber pad. Some of the parts that are included would be hard to find resulting in a compromise on performance of your suspension. These struts also add a camber adjustment to the front end alignment for my vehicle.

            These struts were installed on a 2000 dodge caravan. With under 500 miles on the struts after installation, the top bearing on one of the struts began to make grumbling noises like the one I removed, suggesting that the new bearing has a problem as well, which is disappointing because of the work involved to say nothing of the expense of the part.

            Exact fit to my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan. Only thing I did not like was the lower bolt holes to attach to steeting nuckle are oval VS OEM round none adjustment. For alignment chrysler does not specify alignment for this that is why they make them round. I LINED UP THE SHINNY METEL OUTLINE FROM THE OLD STRUT TO THE NEW ONE AND I WAS WITHIN SPEC FOR ALINMENT.

            I am using the second set of shock since the first ones last about 3 months then they start leaking. The second set that is install now from a confortable riding became stiff and hard like a sport car. The concept is good but prepare yourself to change them every 4 months or so on.

            This is a great factory replacement that eliminates the dangerous/difficult spring removal/reinstallation. Includes new strut, springs, bearing plate, etc... no guessing if the "accessory" parts are worn. Don't forget alignment when you are done.
