    Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

    I just installed these struts so I can't review them performance wise. They seem to be sturdy and well-built though, and most of the installation was very easy due to it being a one-piece assembly. For some reason though, on my 1991 Escort LX hatchback, they were 2 inches too long to be bolted in at the bottom and we had to compress the strut. It may just have been that my rusted suspension had less traven than normal, but it was hitting the bump stops, so I doubt it. Also, just a note, I had previously purchased the higher end version of this strut, and it was the same length as this one.

      I had to place four orders to get the discount, and it was a direst ship from the factory, and it took two shipments, and they didn't arrive together! Bad Buisness! Never again!

        • Q:

          Is this for the sedan, or wagon? The coil springs sold seperately appear to be longer for the wagon. Does this matter and if it does do you have an assembled unit for it?

            Your question can not be answered at this time with the information given. I do recommend visiting your local Advance Auto Parts store to speak with the employees there so they can get more information from you and better help you with your inquiry.
