I was thinking of replacing my front struts with Monroe Econo-Matic or Monroe Quick-Strut witch i viewed on rockauto site..The prices are great for either one and they are easy to install..However are they recommended or good qaulity for the 2000s bonneville ssei?
I just installed the monroe quickstruts (and control arms, tie rod ends, etc) on my SE. Easy install, and cheap. At least cheap compared to buying inserts, bearing plates, etc. Car drives like new again, with 234K on it.
I think the springs are different for the SSEI, though, and I dont think monroe offers a spring for >SE rates. It would still work, just not as "sporty".
Not sure what KYBs were installed..I know they were for my application and the mechanic warned me that they are stiffer and not as smooth on bumps but stronger..he was correct! takes bumps hard..That was about a year in a half ago and its seems the mounts are making thumpings noises when turning..so was thinking of just changing whole unit to monroe.
