Royal Purple made my transmission shift much better than the OE fluid, it's not even close. Best money I've spent on the car probably.

Are you sure the rubber part itself is spinning? If so then the mount is toast, I would imagine Monroe has some sort of warranty. But honestly when it comes to the strut mount there is no substitute...

They are junk IMO too many stories of them clunking, the strut bearing failing, the ride height too high and a bunch of other nonsense. KYB makes an excellent strut (although the ride is not as soft...

The hood is the same 1997-2001 so in theory you should be able to use the newer style grill.

Would not be surprised if the Monroe mounts are the source of the noise. The torque spec for the nut is 36 lbf·ft if you use a Lexus mount, the Monroe one may be different.

Then you clean it off with something like acetone or rubbing alcohol. It's not a big deal at all just don't touch the friction surfaces with greasy hands.
