Question On Shock/Strut Installation/Replacement

Hey all,

I'm about to buy a pair of Front Monroe Reflex Struts and a pair of Rear Monroe Reflex Shock Absorbers, I wanted to know if I should also buy 2 or more Monroe Strut Mate Strut Mounting Kit - Front, and also x amount of Moog or Stock? Front, Lower Coil Spring Insulator + rear ones?

My Jeep has 195k KM or 122k miles, what parts should I buy besides the struts/shocks?

Thanks.

Re: Question On Shock/Strut Installation/Replacement

I didn't buy any other parts, just made sure to rent a McPherson Strut Compressor from the local auto place so I could compress the springs. The Monroe Reflexes come with a new nylon locking nut for the top of the mount. My mounts and rubber was in good shape at 85k when I replaced. I added some lithium grease and they were good to go.

Re: Question On Shock/Strut Installation/Replacement

Is this what I need to buy as well, when I replace the shocks/struts with Monroe Reflexes?
