Hi there, I'm about to swap all my struts for what Autozone has (Monroes). I'm not looking for a super stiffer ride or anything like that, but I do think it's time to replace them struts. So, was Monroe a good choice? And is it a big deal if I reuse the Springs, or should I change them as well? Any thoughts and tips are appreciated... THANKS!

Monroes are fine, if you reuse your springs just put the longest ones on the drivers side of the car.

Awesome, thanks for the tip. One last question, Monroes vs KYB GR2 Excel-G... Which one would be a better pick? THANKS!

Valving in the monroes is sometimes better than the kybs but their quality control is not as good, as a brand I would recommend kyb.
