As the title says, 16k miles ago with little forewarning I had my shocks/struts replaced on my 07 RAV4 2.4L with I believe Monroe Econo-matics, including stabilizer bar, end links, etc. At least that's what they said they installed, I can't see a label or model name on the shocks themselves. Due to my time crunch at the time I didn't research properly beforehand, I trusted the indy as they are a reputable outfit. Anyway, right from the start I didn't like them, front or rear, but stuck with them thinking maybe it was just me. They seemed simultaneously too harsh and too soft; harsh on sharp bumps but soft, wallowy, and bouncy overall. 16k later, and all those tendencies have only gotten worse. They suck. My question is, are these just junk to begin with? And also, I'm debating if I want to stick with them for another 3 years when I plan on replacing the car, or replace them soon and enjoy my remaining time with the vehicle. I otherwise like this SUV, great shape with 116k on the odometer. These crappy shocks/struts just take the fun out of it. I regret getting these, wondering what I should have used instead. Maybe just OEM.
