I need to replace the struts on an '05 Camry with the 2.4L L4. Not looking to upgrade to any kind of performance…just want a nice smooth comfortable ride. I could not locate the Monroe Sensatrac Quick-Strut for this model. I’d prefer to go the quick strut route for ease of installation but if I can get a better strut, then changing the springs is not a problem.
How are the Monroe vs. KYB vs. Gabriel vs. Sensen vs. Sachs etc…?? Should I go ahead and replace the springs also since everything will be all apart? Would it be wise to replace the rears at the same time with the matching brand? Of course I will get an alignment after the installation.
Any thoughts or recommendations?
