My daughter has an 01 Civic with about 126K on the clock. The ride is beginning to get springy soft. I see where Monroe currently has a rebate so I'm thinking of having the front's replaced and wondering what is the best way to go. Can most shops do this job? How can I take it to a shop and still get the rebate? Or, can I? If I were to purchase them, where is the best place to do that? I read critic's post about Quick Struts, but it appears from Monroe's (and other's) website that there is no app for the Civic. So it seems I will need to get the struts and mounting plates, is that right? I know I will need an alignment after. Do I need to go to a shop that does alignments too? Or, can it be gotten close enough to take to an alignment shop of my chioce after? Lastly, about how much should it cost to get this job done? Thanks in advance.
