Oringinal struts or not

How do I tell if the struts on my car are still factory originals or have been changed out? They still have the Monroe stickers on them.

Re: Oringinal struts or not

How old was the vehicle when you bought it? ...and what was the mileage? Stock shocks should be replaced every 70K. It all depends on the miles...hard miles and heavier loads will mean sooner replacement. Monroe is original equipment on a lot of vehicles and are one of the cheapest shocks to purchase. Unless you have an F250 or greater, push down on the rear end and if it bobs up and down a few times before settling down, chances are the shocks are originals.
