Default front strut replacement

Just FYI... Replaced the struts on my 08 PT last week and used the Monroe Quick-Struts P/N 171592ST. Made for a nice job... no need to mess with removing and transfering the coil spring. Also, less money than buying the strut and upper bearing separately.

Yep.

I think that's likely the best way to go if you are staying OEM. Where did you buy yours and how much?

RockAuto has them for $97.97 each. There's no tax, and with a discount code you can get 5% off of that. Total bill with shipping ($21) would be about $206 for both struts.

I also tried the TRT30 discount code at Advanced. But even with 30% off and free shipping, that one comes up to $211 and you still have to pay tax. Amazon is about the same even with free Prime shipping. So RockAuto is the definite winner on this one for the Monroe brand strut assemblies.

Good info for those shopping around. However, O'Reilly has military discount so they get my business.

Plus they are one of a couple local places that get my business that know me and will get something today if they don't have it on hand.

I got a full set (Monroe shocks and struts) ready to bolt in for $138.00.(New not refurbished) From EBay. They should be delivered tomorrow. Looks pretty cut and dry. Hopefully they will get here with some daylight left so I can get them done tomorrow. I'm taking 14 hour road trip from Georgia to Illinois on Friday. I'll snap pictures as I go. Wish me luck.
