I’m replacing all 4 struts on my 2007 Accord LX. First issue I have is what struts to buy. I browsed around a little and found people mentioning the Monroe Quick strut assembly (part# 172123L on Monroe’s website would be an example). I’m not sure if I should go for that one or just the OESpectrum strut (Monroe part# 72123). Which would be better for the car in the long run? Any positive or negative feedback from people that personally installed and used either? Additionally, any helpful installation advice or tips will be appreciated.
I’ve never replaced rotors or brake pads before, but I’ll be doing that for the first time as well. I have spoken with a few people that have said it’s easy, and I’m confident I should be able to get through it without much issue. With these I’m more so looking for recommendations as far as which pads & rotors I should purchase. I think I don’t wanna cheap out on these since I have the tendency to drive too fast too often.
Just to give a little background on me and my tech expertise. I’m a mechanical engineer and like taking stuff apart and putting it together. Haven’t been able to do much with my car until now due to not having the time, but now that I do, I’m all in. I’m just very cautious when it comes to my car, I really need it intact (and functioning) for that hour commute to work.
