Monroe 71299 Struts
Struts arrived quickly, well packed. The online picture didn't match the actual product, but it was the correct part. The stem uses a rectangular tip for putting a wrench on to help tighten the nut. The original uses a allen head type. Found the allen head was a lot easier to deal with but the install was still good. Took about 15 min to remove the old part, compress the spring and another 15 min to install it back in. Overall this is a great product.

OEM Quality
Struts are great but I wish they included a installation guide of some sort. It only took 5 mins for me to figure out but I got it.

They Absorb The Road!
I can't believe how well these shocks absorb the road, my car use to feel like a skateboard until I installed these Monroe shock absorbers!

Shock Absorber
I selected them for my 2006 S60 due to a premium lifetime warranty they were backed with. Monroe is one of the best manufacturers of the absorbers that I can trust. Have then installed both for the rear. Very durable shocks, must admit! Fast shipping at low cost.

Great Improvement Over Old OEM Struts
Purchased a pair of Monroe Spectrum struts and already can feel a more stable ride. These struts replaced OEM struts that lasted for 80,000 miles.

Excellent Struts
Struts were delivered quickly. Easy installation, make sure you buy/rent a spring compression tool from your local hardware store. Only issue I ran into installing new strut be sure to tighten the first nut on the strut before installing second nut so you won't have it spinning when you tighten it down. Other than those few pointers they were a huge upgrade from my stock struts and I can feel the difference! I highly recommend these.
