Ugh...well its been about a thousand miles and the replacement mounts have begun making noise. I've already got the replacement ones under warranty, but A.) its been so damn cold out I haven't had the drive to replace them and B.) I think I may just get OEM ones. This will be set #3. I was really hoping these "redesigned" mounts/bearings would you know, actually last, but nope. If anything they sound worse than originals in the Quick Struts did.
Monroe blames improper installation by the shop. When I asked why their mounts are the same on both sides while OEMS are 2 different ones He had no answer other than it shouldn't matter...right.
At this point I'd be better off getting used OEM mounts and bearing out of the junkyard than putting these new ones in again. Wish I had kept my old OEMs. The struts were rotting out but they never clunked while turning. Oh well, tome to get some new OEM mounts and bearings. I did say I'd report back on these "new and improved" mounts, and while the bearing may be improved, the mounts aren't. When I take them apart we'll see what the bearings look like.
Can't say I'm surprised by any of this, just disappointed.
The only thing dependable about the future is uncertainty.
