Default Rear AIr Shocks 2001 Bonne

It time to replace my rear shocks and I was wondering if anyone had installed these:

[ link is for reference purposes only]
I know they don't come with the upper mounts, I would be installing those too.
If you have installed these on your car what are your thoughts? Is the ride/handeling quality the same as O.E.? What about ride height?

Yup the Monroe'* are the ones you want. They last longer than the OEMs.
(Info above is what SawGunner has told me before, I have to replace mine but haven't gotten to it yet)

I have a set of these waiting for an install in my 2000. I got mine from RockAuto as well as the upper mounts. Check RockAuto...you can't beat the prices - even with Amazon.

I used the Amazon link because it was the best that showed what I was talking about.
I'll probably order from Rockauto or I get coupons everyday from Advanced Auto. Sometime the Advanced coupons are to good to pass up.

I bought the Monroe from Amazon and I bought the upper mounts also from Amazon. Check out the price of the Upper mounts. Amazon has them for $8.43 each. I don't have any complaints about the Monroe.
