In my Monroe Quick Strut Review I talk about both the pro's and the con's of the Quick strut. You can't buy a spring, strut, strut hat, and strut bearing separately for twice the price of what you can buy a fully ready to go Monroe Quick Strut assembly.
Monroe Quick Struts are just that. Quick. It doesn't get no easier than this. Aside from the fact you can install them really fast, the real benefit here isn't the installation time, it's all the components that are included for one low price. You get:
- Bearing Plate
- Upper Spring Isolator
- Upper Spring Seat
- Coil Spring
- Boot Kit
- Lower Spring Isolator
- Premium Strut
OK, let's get to the Monroe Quick Strut Review If you're looking for race car handling, don't install Monroe's. Get the KYB Strut Plus instead. If you're looking for nice comfortable new car quality ride and handling, these are what you want.
I love installing complete spring and strut assembly's because in the end the vehicle always rides better and steers better because of the new bearings that come in the top hat assembly part of the strut. You just can't go wrong installing these. Quality wise they should last as long or longer than the units that you took out.
One Problem Found In Our Monroe Quick Strut Review
The only thing you have to watch out for on these is there have been a small number of people reporting that the strut nut was loose on the new strut assembly and there was a rattle in the vehicle after installation. That's it. No other problems.
So if you go with the Quick Struts, save yourself some grief and check the torque on the strut nut before you install them. By now hopefully Monroe's got that issue taken care of.
Does Your Vehicle Need Them?
If you have over 100,000 miles on your vehicle, absolutely. I can pretty much guarantee your springs are toast. If it was my car and it had over 60K on it, I'd go with Quick struts. Under that, I'd just install strut cartridges.
The Monroe Quick Struts are available for Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Chrysler, Buick, Oldsmobile, Dodge and Chevrolet. Plus a few other makes and SUV's too. Ford Explorer is one of them.
In the 31 years that I've been installing Monroe struts and shocks, I've never had to take a set back off a customers vehicle because of ride quality issues. Monroe is also offering a limited lifetime warranty on the Quick Struts and they're offering them for trucks and SUVs too now.
Buy or Don't Buy?
Like I said above, if I'm going for a nice comfortable ride, I would buy the Monroe Quick Strut and enjoy the new car ride that you get when you install them.
