40,000 miles ago replaced my strurts and springs with monroe quick struts. The family is complaining about ride being too sponge. If I replace again would like to get some feed back on other brands would not do monroe again. Our family likes sporty frimer ride type. We all have to replace these at some point may be a sticky with the brands and ride type would be a big help

Many in here like the "Strut tek" brand from "Prime Choice auto parts". They have a web site by the same name. They cost around $78 each for the Quick Strut, or half of what Monroe's cost. Strut Teks are made in China.

I'm running the StrutTEK's on all four corners and have nothing but good things to say about them! The ride is awesome and the price is right.

The rears were installed on 11/29/2010 & the fronts were installed on 2/20/2012. The ride is nice and firm.

I love them. The ride is great. I can't compare them to factory since both rear springs were broken and both fronts were leaking when I bought the Ex.

One thing I can tell you is you definitely won't be going down the street like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!!
