I hope you haven't bought them yet. I just bought the sensatracs for 90 bucks after the mail in rebate from Monroe.
Do the advance auto online thing. Make TWO separate orders that total just a hair more than 85 bucks. Use code BIG35 on each one. Save 35 bucks on each order. So 35+35+25=95 plus saved taxes. (BIG35 is 35 dollars off orders 85 dollars and more.
Was gonna cost me about 190 but I ended up paying 90.
As for the install:
Rear bolts were rusty as hell. Big breaker bar needed. Top bolts weren't too bad as they don't see the elements as much as the bottom ones.
Fronts I though were easier. I just sawzalled the top bolt off. (watch out for brake/fuel lines on drivers side (2.5L)). After unbolting the bottom bolts it just slid right out.
Now I don't have any more "rear end flying all over the place after hitting a bump" problem.
