They are better than stock, better than AC Delco.

Feel more sporty

And yes they plug right in. Although I did order from advanceautoparts.com an air line kit part # AK27

New shocks and struts on! WOW, I forgot how nice that car rides, and handles. It only has 56K on it, but the stockers were dead. I ended up putting AC Delco'* back on, the oder from RockAuto had already processed when I decided I wanted to try the Monroes...next time I will go that rout. The rears came with a air lin kit. I had to switch fittings for the new shocks, and yes the cheap clips on the original shocks broke. I ended up putting lock nuts on the lower mounting bolts.

Thanks again for all your help.
