Monroe sensatrac w/ 300m special springs

I was just wondering if anyone has mixed and matched this combo?

I had the rear struts replaced on my fathers intrepid with happy results (so far), so I figured I'd get the front done.

Now the common problem I read is that the strut mounts suck on the front quick strut, so I'm planning on buying the monroe strut, u/l spring seat, and the OEM mount/bearing (or just use the old bearing).

I have a set of 300M special springs sitting in my garage, so I was wondering if it would be beneficial to use those instead of tearing apart the old strut for the springs. Will this create better dampening rates, or just a bouncier ride (I probably won't notice anyways).

If not, I suppose the best and route would be to purchase the quick struts and the OEM mounts?

I wouldn't reuse the old bearing.

Hell I wouldn't even use a Monroe strut on a NEW OEM bearing LOL! My OEM bearing (both top and bottom of mount were OEM) failed when paired with a Monroe strut after just 1 year of easy driving.

I went to Midas, dropped $900+ on a set of front quick struts, lifetime warranty. I got tired of replacing each side 3 times myself only to have them fail each year. Sensa track, don't matter. Monroe sucks. Just have it installed by someone that gives a lifetime warranty and when it starts making noise, replace them immediately.
