    Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

    This product was used to replace a defective part on an older Honda Accord. The part was an exact fit and easy it install. The part saved installation time by being a single unit. I was satisfied with the front Monroe strut and would purchase it again. I would also recommend it to others.

        Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

        This is a great product and makes the job so much easier. You don't have to use a spring compressor at all, unless it's set up for the other side. This product is supposed to be for either side; however the studs on the bearing plate and the angle of the bearing plate might not line up correctly to fit the side you need it for. You must then compress the spring some and spin the bearing plate

        • Q:

          I noticed that this exact same part number is listed for 2.2L 4 cylinder Accord and for a 2.7L 6 cylinder Accord. I don't believe that can be correct since a V6 front end is much heavier. Can you verify this part will wotrk for both? Also, weren't these buy 3 get one free? Thanks...

        • Q:

          I've got a 1996 honda accord ex 2.2 cylinder. I noticed that there's no left or right labeling on this product. Is it universal for both front left and front right? I noticed that the rear quick struts show different models for left and right side but not the front. Please advise. Thanks.

          Normally a left and a right; different parts.
          Does this fit either side?

            They say it is universal, however I bought this item and the holes for the top mount did not line up for the left (driver) side. I had to compress the coil spring then rotate the mount.
