Here's a picture of my Centennial. Purchased last year with 43K miles on it. Getting ready this weekend to put new Monroe Quik Struts on it. Any advice on replacing these struts would be appreciated. I do not live in an area of the country where salt is used and therefore the pinch bolts should come out just fine.

Car has the Mach Audio with 4 Pioneer 6x8 350 watt speakers, along with two Alipine amps augmenting the system and driving a Sony Xplod mono 1300 watt sub in the trunk.

With that audio setup if go with the Moog cargo coils. I think they're part number cc859?

Nice Centennial! I see that you're in the Pacific Northwest too, I'll add you to the roster...

Go slow with the struts, trying to rush anything with cars will almost guarantee failure in the future.

Go slow for sure. I have been studying up on how to replace. Seems pretty straight forward. There was a great post on this site with detailed instructions on the rear struts. Great YouTube video for front strut replacement.

Rear struts (on the Gen 4) are super easy... right up until the pinch bolt snaps. You lucky non-salters should have no problem doing it yourself.
