Since 2003, Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies have been application-engineered to provide OE-style ride and handling plus long service life. Each Monroe Quick-Strut assembly includes premium Monroe strut technology tuned and tested to address the unique characteristics of its corresponding application. Each assembly features a U.S.-grade steel and OE-equivalent spring design that’s paired with a vehicle-specific coil spring; premium, OE-style upper strut mount and bearing plate; and other high-quality components.

Quick-Strut assemblies are backed by Tenneco’s limited lifetime warranty and exclusive “Feel the Difference™ Guarantee” money-back consumer offer. Visit www.Monroe.com for guarantee details.

Tenneco also has introduced new additional Monroe® suspension conversion kits to cover various models of the popular Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Avalanche, Chevrolet Suburban and Chevrolet Tahoe. Monroe suspension conversion kits are all-in-one, economical systems to convert worn air spring, hydraulic self-leveling and/or electronic suspensions to conventional mechanical suspensions without activating the vehicles’ electronic warning signals. Each Monroe kit is engineered to restore factory ride height and provide stable, comfortable ride and handling performance and includes the detailed installation instructions, parts and hardware for a superior fit and trouble-free installation. Kits can be installed without the need to make any structural changes to the vehicles.
