Default Anyone know the difference between Monroe Reflex struts?

I found a store that has Monroe Reflex'* (confirmed by part #, box and label on struts) but before I make my purchase which would be best and what is the difference between these two part #'*?

931799 (which is what they have) and 931798 (listed in WillWren'* ELC struts write up).


Also, my car has the standard suspension (non-air ride) from the factory. Can I use Reflex air struts, setup with a valve stem in a hidden location for manual control of the psi?

They have both??

Yes you could use the reflex... What are they charging? If they have the ELC Reflex I want to talk to you Blue Eyes

And just look at how I adapted my SE to Rear Air struts... Works good

They only had the 931799 on hand. Waiting for a reply whether they have the 931798'*.

They quoted me $51 apiece including shipping, and $40 apiece before shipping.

You may not have the shipping charges as they are in Florida, but I can't recall at the moment where exactly in Florida.

Ahhh ok... They do not have the ELC I don't think... and I think Know exactly what you are talking about... Located in Miami right?

They do have the regular Reflex strut for the Rear( Non Air ).... I have been watching them.... I have thought about getting the Monroe Matic Plus rear air struts for the 91 LE... I really want the Reflex tho

Yup, Miami...... CBSAutomotive. Just check again, realized that they are non ELC units.

I really need new struts, but after spending $650 for new tires, brake rotors, and NGK TR-6'* I found I need a new set of Belden Max'* -the #1 wire escaped the front plug wire retainer and the cooling fan made two pieces of it.
$700 in one weekend is a little rich for my taste'* so I'll probably hold off for another 2-3 weeks before I do the struts (probably will have them done when I put the new rims on).
