    Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

    Other than having to drill out the 3 mounting holes in the strut tower to accomodate the larger bolts on the replacement unit, this bolts right in. Since I've installed alot of struts over the years, I read the instructions just for fun. The instructions with this are terrible and probably scare off people who could actually do the job just fine. You will need metric tools, and a really good impact wrench. That was the only hard part, getting the spindle bolts loose after being on the car 18 years. (Yeah, I keep my cars a long time). I do feel these replacement units are worth the extra cost. You can replace just the strut itself, but I've found you'll always run into some other part you'll need, and end up spending more than if you'd just bought this in the first place. Plus, compressing springs is a dangerous task that I would just as not do anymore. I wouldn't hesitate to use these again. I give this product 4 stars instead of 5 only because of the instructions. I always use the factory manual instructions for my vehicles, but I know that isn't practical for everyone (those books are not cheap).

                A:

                Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. I would recommend having someone with experience perform the work due to this being a very critical area of the vehicle and requires the proper equipment.
