Haven't even installed the struts yet. Going to get someone to do that next week and will be getting a wheel balance about a week or so after the installation is done

|scottfarcuz||Anyone got the rebate money from this deal yet?|

I just ordered from RockAuto and saved $30 more compared to Amazon.
Amazon was $212 for four sensa-trac. RockAuto was $182 shipped after a 5% coupon.
So, all said and done, $92 for all four struts.

Were is the rebate form for the Monroe struts?

Monroe and Gabriel both suck horribly, but even the cheapest Konis will blow OEM away for less money. I've got retardedly too much money in my suspension, but I race my cars...

#1 ALL quick struts are crap. Keep your OEM springs or buy aftermarket ones from a brand that backs them up with a serious warranety.
#2 For the $200-$300 these setups cost, it's probably better to throw down $350 on some Koni STR.T damps. I'm not going to suggest people go out and buy Bilstiens or high end Konis --but Koni's orange shocks and struts are cheap. I just can't get on board with buying Monroe or Gabriel when one the big players with a serious warranty has entered the budget market.

|davedumontier||I'm reading all these opinions about various shocks/struts. May I ask how many people here have ever actually changed macpherson struts. It's a big job, with the rears often being especially troublesome. I'm not talking about the struts themselves. Once they're off the car, a good spring compressor will handle the disassembly/assembly relativly easily. Getting to the rear interior mounting bolts can be a chore (BMW E39 for instance). It's a very good idea to buy a Clymer manual for your exact car, at the very least, to have a guide for the procedure. If you're lucky, Youtube will have a video on the procedure. On many cars, don't forget to get an alignment when the job is done.|

Also remember that lifetime warranty from advanced includes wear and tear. So when they simply wear out, you can get instant replacements.
