              Easy to install with basic tools. Changed front and rear to my minivanin in abouth 3 hours of work. Initially i was ready to buy the struts and spring separately but with quik-strut assembly you save monney and time. It is cheaper than buying all parts separately plus you d'ont need spring coil compresing tools. Happy with the purchase, saved a lot of money and time. I have nothing to say abouth quality since this is the first monroe part purchased i hope will latst at least couple of years and many miles.

                        Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

                        I needed springs and struts for my van. I have been a mechanic for many years and I was not looking forward to having to get tools in order to install them. This assembled unit is a great deal, installation was very easy and only required two wrenches and a hammer for the spline mounting bolts. It indeed was a quick strut installation. All that was required after installtion was adjusting the toe-in. The new products brought the alignment back into the original specifications. It rides like a new van!
