I purchased a Monroe Quick Strut kit from Rock Auto and a set of cheap $69.99 Chinese Goodshop-US lower control arms on Ebay for my 2005 EX-L. The front end is now around 2 inches higher than the rear and my garage refuses to do an alignment because the "shocks aren't correct". I plan to put the old control arms back on tomorrow to see if the vehicle sits right. I went back on Ebay and the control arms I purchased are "not compatible" with the EX-L model but fit the EX and LX models. I'm hoping the struts I bought are OK for the EX-L and all I need to do is get new lower EX-L specific control arms. Has anyone had this EX-L issue?
