I wrote a good review when I first got these. I got an email from amazon that said a customer thought my review was helpful. I came here to update my review. When I got them, It looked a little funny where the upper spring seat met the bearing. I put them on anyway because I have always used Monroe shocks at my shop and on my vehicles. These rode great. After a few months, it started making a popping noise when turning. I looked at it and the rubber between the spring and the bearing was all torn up and the spring had shifted off center. I emailed Amazon and they sent me a new set. The new set looks the same as the first. I thought it was an isolated incident until this point. The yellow bearing housing was warped because the oval design of the spring only makes contact with bearing in a couple places and has a rubber spring seat between it. I called Monroe and sent pics and they said they would check their stock and see if they can find a solution and get back with me. After a month,I hadn't heard from them so I checked back and got, "We're still checking on it". Another month went by and I left a message for the same tech support guy to call me. I never got a call. I called back a few days later and talked to him. I told him I want a refund so I can try another brand. He said he'd call me back in 3 days with a response from his boss. No call. I called back a few days later and he said return them to Amazon for a refund. Now I need to send back 2 new struts and 2 old struts and buy some from KYB. Monroe's customer service sucks. I've been messed around for 3 months now by Monroe. Amazon has done me right so far. We'll see if I get refunded.

Update. Trying to get the idea across that I will be returning 4 struts in 3 boxes was as frustrating as playing Abbot and Costello's "Who's On First" skit. But I think we got it figured out.

I'll never use anything else but a "Quick-Strut" in the future.

I've rebuilt a few front-ends in the past, and have purchased a $250 OTC spring compressor previously for that work. Getting the struts out, using that expensive tool, and then having to change out the mounts and reassemble; what a PITA.

With the Quick-Struts I removed the old struts and installed these on a 2004 Silhouette in about 3-hours. If I could have gotten to the nuts for the top mounts easier, I probably could have changed the set out in under 2-hours.

Overall, a great product.

Installed on 1999 Chevy Venture LT. Struts were a bit taller overall than my OEM takeoffs, and I had to really push down hard on lower suspension to get the lower bolts to align. After installing, van height increased front-end height about an inch, vehicle sit level again. Good front end stability.

Quick-strut will be my only way to go. I've had near misses before when compressing the springs before this type of strut came along. These are easy to install with normal tools in your tool box. I also use some spray liquid stronger than WD-40 to help break the rusted bolts. Add some heat and the nuts break lose. Time to put the replacements on and everything is done. Maybe an hour for me with a couple breaks thrown is.

Units took a lot of time to install do to having problems getting to the top bolts. Had to remove the winshield wiper control arms in order to get room. The lower bolts were also hard gettnig out. Now the ride is much better, you can ride over pot holds without loosing control of the van. This was put into a 2002 Olds Silhouette van.

Had to replace these struts twice. The first set lacked the quality of the Monroes and were about the same price. Out for the box these were better. On the first set the steering plates failed along with other problems with the springs and rubber parts.

This review concerns the installation only - on my 1997 Pontiac TransSport. Overall the installation with this quick strut assembly was pretty easy. You save a bunch of time not having to remove the strut from the coil. There was only one real hitch. As other reviewers have mentioned, this assembly was about 1 inch too long to fit in the suspension without additional disassembly. I finally decided to disconnect the torque bar link to the wheel. It was actually a bit fortuitous - as when I tried to unbolt the link, the bolt snapped. This was due to extreme wear on the bolt over the last 19 years (see photo). Left to its own, it may have snapped while driving. I bought the replacement parts (bolt and rubbers) and installed those. I highly recommend doing that for older vehicles.
I will try to update the review when I get a few miles on the new strut.

Did this make a difference or what in the way my '97 Chevy Venture handles and rides. I was told that the passenger side front strut bearing was bad. So I figured why not just replace the whole strut with quick struts. This is the only way to fly if you're going to replace your front struts. Saves a lot of time by going with quick struts. I bought the pair for both sides. I highly recommend these quick struts if it's time to replace your front struts.
