    The wife's caliber is due for new struts.
    I'll get quick struts regardless, but I was wondering:
    Is Monroe still any good? The premiums were made in USA, a huge plus, but I didn't look at the low line stuff.
    Is their premium line really any different than the value line Monroe stuff, or is the price difference just for the warranty?

    Thanks for your advice. I don't usually buy late model stuff that doesn't come from a salvage yard.

    I do quite a few strut jobs at my shop and use Monroe Sensa Trac (they actually are in the process of phasing out the name) a majority of the time. Pretty decent product for the money still. Have only warrantied 2 sets in 10 yrs. Only use Economatics if the car is junk or customer demands it. There is a difference !!! A lot of parts stores are coming out with "house brand" quick struts recently, which should keep Monroe's pricing honest for awhile.
