        Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

        This is a great replacement option. I wasn't sure that the Quick Strut was worth extra cost over just a replacement strut. After watching some video about replacing just the strut and pricing out all the components included in the quick strut, I decided to bite the bullett and get them. The replacement went quickly and easily, and the car performs as expected. The Quick Strut is a much easier and cost effective option than just replacing struts.

                    Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

                    A good idea, but with poor execution.Cheap paint over old springs, to make seem new.I used spray paint to cover rust spots and missing paint. Bottom holes did not line up had to use drill to make fit.one quick strut was missing retaining nuts for the top part.For [$] apiece you think they would put out a better product.
