      Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

      The sebring convertible started making loud thunking noises in the passenger rear end when hitting bumps. Upon inspection the shock was leaking and the top strut mount had corroded very badly. Ordered online with coupon. Received wrong unit they sent for sedan not convertible. Returned to my local store and they got the correct set in next day and matched the online price. Very satisfied with product very easily installed and now car rides as new.

                  I ordered the shocks and struts and had a friend install them for me. This saved me a lot of money as compared to having the mechanic install them. He had it done in ablout one hour! There were no problems during the installation and this saved me hundreds of dollars.

                      Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

                      This was easy to install and looks like a good product. It looks better than the original since the original upper mount bracket appeared to be aluminum and it was all corroded away. This one looks to be steel (I didn't do a magnet test at the time).

                      This was my first DIY strut replacement and it went pretty well. I replaced both rear struts on a Dodge Stratus. I was a bit uneasy about removal and installation since even with the car jacked all the way up, there was still tension on the spring and I was led to believe (not from Advanced Auto) that I didn't need a spring compressor if using a quick strut. But, I was able to coerce the old one off and new one on safely, using 2 pry bars. It turns out the tension wasn't real high, so. . .it was safe doing it this way.
