Hello. My wife's 2006 Liberty (4x4) has 108k. All the suspension is factory original. The car does not handle well and I want to install new quick struts in front and springs and shocks in the back. Who makes the better quick strut Moog or Monroe. The Moogs are $25 a strut more expensive than the Monroe from Rock Auto. The car is her daily driver and I drive it in the winter to CO for ski trips. I take the car off road sometimes but not much. Nothing serious. I want to retain the stock ride height and handling. Your thoughts?? Also, anything else I should change while the front end is apart?? Thanks again
Welcome to the board first off. I really can't say who is better. Monroe would have the sensatrac technology, Moog I can't say what they use. Could be reboxed product from Monroe for all I know. Decent enough quality, but as will be pointed out the springs will sag again, etc. May consider going with higher quality shocks all the way around, and better springs. It just so happens it may lift it some too,lol. I can bet I'll be backed on this when I say Bilstein makes really good shock and strut products, and if it wasn't for the fact that you need springs I would suggest going that way.
I wondered the same. But I think in the end Monroe is the way I'm going. It will save a few dollars and have like new ride characteristics again. When it comes to suspension parts like sway bar end links and such, I'll always spend extra for Moog parts. Totally overbuilt and regreaseable etc. The Monroe quickstruts are going to work great and ride like new and you saved yourself $50 for new Moog swaybar endlinks when those wear out.
Rockauto seemed to have the best prices for front strutpacks that I've found yet.
Well I went with Monroe. Put the quick struts on the front and new shocks on the rear (Monroe Sensatrack). Also put four Michelin LTX/MS2 tires on. Had to go a little bigger than stock--235/70/17. Amazing difference. BTW Amazon had the quick struts cheaper than Rock Auto and free shipping
