I just put on Monroe Select strut and spring kits on the front of my 04 and it raised the front up about 1.5 inches. I have yet to do the back and they are sagging badly at this point. I have 170,000 on this car. It had all original parts as well. I changed wheel bearing struts, springs, ball joints, and of course strut bearings which were really bad on the old oem parts. The kits make it easy to change them out. And all the parts that wear are replaced all at once. I am going to do the backs sometime soon when a little more money comes my way.
I am happy with the Monroe's at this point. The car rides better and is quieter up front.

2004 Taurus SE. Yep it was free.
