May I suggest getting the KYB gr-2 struts. That is what I installed on the Malibu, and if I am not mistaken Seth ( smellbird) has them on his 97, and even with it lowered the ride was great. They are priced very close to the Monroe. Also if I am not mistaken KYB makes quite a few of the OEM struts for companies.

Monroe Sensatracs are the same response and ride as the GR2. Reflex are better.

Id love to get Reflex, however, can't find them.
I think i will settle for the next best thing in that case?
Works for me, OEM would be far better than what i have now LOL

Lotsa times, it is the strut bearings that make the clunk. Be a shame to change all that and still have the clunka-clunka.
