Strut Help

Hi
First post. Looking for some help with the front struts. I have the 2007 Compass with the 2.4L engine.

I've purchased the front struts from monroe. The issue is with the strut mounts. Monroe doesn't sell them.

1. Will any parts manufacturer's strut mounts which are meant for the Compass work with the Monroe struts? Is it a standard connection?

2. If I purchase the strut and the mount, do I need to purchase anything else? When I was looking for strut mounts, I've come accross strut mount bearings, cushions, etc. What do I need or should I get?

Thanks in advance.

Actually, I own a Caliber - same vehicle, different body.
Yes, you are correct, aftermarket strut hardware is hard to come by.
When I replaced my struts (with KYB's), I just purchased all of the miscellaneous bits that I needed from the local CJD dealer.

Kinda late to this party but I second RonJr... rockauto.com rocks! I've purchased many parts there... I'm actually about to do my own strut replacement and will be looking there first.
