Today the rear brakes on my Mariner got a somewhat overdue reline using Wagner shoes and drums. I popped for drums with the anti rust exterior coating as that is what was OE. Next project will be shocks and struts. I can't decide between Monroe OE Spectrums or Sachs. Any thoughts?

Personally not a Monroe fan. I'd look at OE Motorcraft or KYB. Which one is cheaper!

Monroe has very good promotions sometimes. I’d wait for one of those and get the OE Spectrums. I put them on my Tacoma and was happy with them
