Comments about Monroe Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly:

This strut assembly was all there. There was nothing additional needed, except for the fact that the top three nuts/studs were a different size, so you need another wrench. I think it required a 16 mm socket. This Monroe Quick Strut looks sturdy and new. I took the car on a test drive and everything sounded much better- no strange noises going over small bumps in the road. The application was for a 1997-2001 Toyota Camry. The instructions said to use your manufacturer's manual to find the torque specs. The specs I found were 113 pounds for the 22mm bolts and 29 pounds for the top three nuts.

        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 more cost effective option than just replacing struts.

              They all fit and installed easily. Only issue was the rear mount screws were longer then the original and it was difficult to tighten due to length of bolts.
