Quickstruts...Moog vs Monroe...What to do?
Might just abandon the idea of installing the Monroe Quickstruts I already bought and paid for that I've had for around two years still sitting in boxes and go with Moog Quickstruts. These were intended to go on my 2000 R/T and get all new suspension on it and replace the crappy Eibach lowering springs and trashed struts thanks to the Eibachs.
My reasoning on this is that the time frame where I purchased the Monroes is right in the middle of the shit storm where everyone that installed them was having major problems. Rather than install them...take them out in a month or two after they catastrophically fail and install Moogs finally...I'll nip it in the bud and just buy Moogs. Yes I'll be paying for new Quicktruts again but the cost/hassle/time of taking out failed assemblies shortly after install leads me in the direction of buying the Moogs.
I'll still be installing OEM strut mounts and bearings in the front pair. I already have those parts.
Sell the Monroe Quickstruts cheap on Ebay/Craigslist/Here maybe to recoup a little bit of my money vs the Moogs. If I list here..it'll be full disclosure. They're NIB(New In Box) and never installed....should be worth a few dollars! At least the rears which seem to hold up!
If someone is interested in the New Monroe set of Quickstruts I have shoot me a PM with an offer. These are still in the boxes and never installed. I paid well over $600 probably about 1 1/2 years ago.
What's everyone's thoughts on this plan of action?
