Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

I love that these struts come assembled out of the box. I was able to remove and replace left and right struts by myself in a couple of hours. It would have been even easier with a helper but it can be done solo. I'm not sure why there is only 2 studs and 1 bolt for mounting instead of 3 studs. They both mounted with ease and I noticed a huge difference while driving. I'm so thrilled with these that I will be replacing both of my front struts soon!

    Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

    Unfortunately, this one shock that I purchased replaced one that was defective. The spring came apart in 2 places and the piece fell to the ground. I like Monroe and respect the company so much that I simply replaced it with the one I had intended to use.

    Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

    The optional third top bolt on strut could not be installed; the coil spring totally obstructed the hole from underneath so I'm going with the two bolts that were permanently mounted after discussing the safety/performance issue with Advanced Auto. Even if bolt could have gone through, it was too short(inch and a half) to extend any amount of thread for the nut. What happened?

    • Q:

      I read the second review from the customer saying he had a problem with the 3rd top bolt hole not being accessible because the coil spring was in the way. He also stated that the bolt would have been to short anyway. Does anyone no this to be true before I order a pair of these for my son's Neon. I wouldn't feel it safe to only use 2 bolts instead of 3 that it's suppose to have.

        A:

        This Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly with Part No. 171579 comes with a third bolt as an option only and it is not a concern on safety. This is an optional bolt which has been manufactured considering different make/models based on the respective bolting provisions and is not an added feature for safety. For any further assistance please feel free to call 1-877-238-2623 and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

        the strut has to be lined up perfectly, but the bolt does fit, and is long enough. the extra bracket is not in the way, and for sway bar if needed. recommend highly.
