      Although I ended up buying a second installation kit from a different brand whose lines were just a fraction thicker than Monroe these worked great while I had my van. I highly recommend using plumbers tape on the installation of the caps to assure a proper seal and avoid leaks. I didn't and ended up with a very slow leak in one if the lines. Before I could track it down I had an accident and the cops took away my only home and vehicle. Can't afford another one when you're struggling on SSI as it is. But these shocks were great and a steal at this price. Go ahead and get em, you won't be disappointed like I am now without them...and my van.

      Jump on the last two quick, you won't get another deal like this -$34 shock for $8. I expected either open box & missing hardware orcheap chinese imitation, not so. Boxes were a bit rough but lower bolt was includedand nylon compression strap still in place, correct Monroe part numberstamped on shock.

      Great quality munroe product as expected; however I am only giving three stars because one of the rubber isolators was missing from the hardware package, requiring a separate trip to the local auto parts store.

      Fit great on my 1999 GMC Jimmy 4x4. The upper bolts were kind of a pain to get in as the plastic boot blocked my view and I didn't have a good light on hand. I ended up cutting the banding that held the shock compressed on one of them which made it much easier to move the plastic boot to the side and get to the screw, but it took two of us pushing very hard to get the shock compressed enough to slide onto the lower mount. Once installed there is a night and day difference in ride quality from the old ones. Feel much more safe hitting bumps on the freeway and taking corners fast.

      Theyre may be better shocks out there . But these are pretty bullet proof .

      08 Feb, 2015
      The back of my F150 was sagging down and I noticed it would bounce when loaded, swapping shocks I found one to be totally dead. These Load adjusting shocks fit the bill for what I was looking for. They easily attached to the stock mounting points with the all the stock hardware, ride is much improved, and the rear of the truck sits a few inches higher than before.Note that these are more difficult to install than just regular shocks because you need to compress them a little to fit, use a jack or spring compressor to help if you are not a crossfit regular.

      Best deal around on these shocks. I put 4 on A Buick roadmaster wagon. I wanted to do away with the air shocks on the rear. It worked out perfect for me . Car sets up just A little higher in the rear which is just what I wanted. It really ride and handles better. Drives and rides like A different car. They also raised the front A little. I love the way it looks now and I don't have to listen to the air running. I have since ordered 2 more pair for friends.

      I installed a set on my 2004 Dodge Ram 4 door 4x4. Excellent shocks. I have used Monroe for 40 years on different rigs I have had, always excellent results. My Dodge had 142,000 so obviously the factory shocks were worn out, although the process happens in such a time span you really never know how bad they are. The new shocks all the way around made the Ram feel like new again. The ride is firm, but not bad and the steering and tracking actually changed, for the better. The truck has had a slight pull to the right for some time now, alignment checks ok. The shock replacement (different part number) on the front corrected that problem, how?? I have no idea.I would highly recommend these shocks to anyone wanting a more controlled ride and the price is unbeatable. AND AMERICAN MADE, all win, win.And in yellow!!!!! Anything in yellow looks great!!!

      These shocks work great. I put them on my 2000 Silverado 1500 reg cab 4x4. I replaced what might have been the original shocks that had about 231k miles on them. They caem with all the hardware needed to install. They ride good for the price. Compared to what was on there its a totally different ride now. Will most likely by the compatable rear shocks from Monroe. Great shocks!!!

      My neighbor bought these for his 1999 Ford Ranger through my account. He didn't believe me when I told him that his tires would last longer and he would get a more comfortable ride when he replaced his shocks. A lot of people don't know that. The Monroe Sensa - Trac shocks are a solid choice. But if you do a LOT of off-roading, I suggest that you get shocks you could put that protective boot over to prevent debris getting in there.

      The folks at Monroe advised me that these shocks would fit my car. They were mistaken. However, AutoPartsWAY's Customer Service was incredible! They overnighted a set of MA702 shocks, (which DO fit my car.

      I'm proud to say I installed these myself in my 93 Volvo 240. The old part was leaking and these babies helped me get through inspection. The ride is definitely improved and for the money I spent I am very pleased. Monroe is a name you van trust and worth the money over no-name products, For more performance in handling you can spend a lot more on Bilstien or others. For an aging beauty like my 240, these were just right. They installed well and all the necessary hardware,

      Went right in my 2000 Dodge 1500 Quad Cab. Just remember to place the shock in the correct upright position as it will be installed, and run it full stroke up and down a few times to work the oil in the chambers before you install them. The instructions don't tell you this, but I learned this "trick" way back. It extends the life of the shock, and makes it work better.

      Quality item, and performs as expected. A step up from OEM. Noticed no hashness after install. Original shocks had 120,000+ on them, so it was time for a new set, way past time, that is. I've always had good results from Monroe. Improved the lack of body roll.
    70. pamela mende
      26 Jun, 2014
      Bought 2 of these thinking they were sold individually. Nope, sold as a pair which is an absolute steal. Sent 1 set back as these are for the rear only on my 2008 Honda Fit Sport. Look on Fitfreak dot com for instructions on installing them. Great upgrade if you haul over 200lbs on a regular basis in the backseat or back of your car. Installation is easy and takes less than 2 hours.

      put these on my SUV for towing camper. worked great!! Needed new shocks for van and decided to use these for same reasons. the extra support from springs really makes a difference in eliminating sag in rear end when loaded or towing . if you haul a trailer or carry heavier loads, give these shocks a try. you won"t be sorry. They do raise your rear end up a little but only 3/4 inch. not a big deal. ride is a little stiffer but again, it"s not that noticeable to worry about. Good firm ride.

      Here is what MONROE SAID...The Q&A's and reviews indicate compatability with the GMC Yukon. But since I have a 2005 Yukon XL (SLT with Autoride), I called Monroe, the manufacturer and asked them if it would work with my truck. Monroe 40034 Specialty Shock (use to depletion then use 40209) will bolt onto the Extended/XL trucks but won't have all the "travel" that the 40032 will have. Monroe 40032 Specialty Shock (use to depletion then use 40050) will bolt onto the Extended/XL trucks and WILL have all the travel required for those extra heavy hauls. So that is the scoop and I hope it helps all you backyard mechanics!

      They did the job supporting more camper tonque weight and actually helped in body roll. Would buy them again. They are installed on a 2004 Z71 Tahoe with a 4 inch lift.

      I had no idea my shocks were so badly in need of replacement until after I did the job. What a difference in handling. These were for a 15-year old F350. My truck wasn't bouncing around like some I have seen, just seemed that the front end bobbed too much in the hard corners. The job was quick and easy after I figured out the first one and got the right tools lined up. This purchase option was quite a bit cheaper than some others. Monroes got very high ratings from consumer review sites. I have had them on for several months now and they are great. If I need shocks for this truck in another 15 years, I'll definitely get these again.

      I priced these shocks everywhere and bought them here because of the price and free shipping. They seem to be a good shock and I like the ride. Will have to see how they hold up.

      I bought these (plus the fronts, item #37083) to replace the old shocks on my 99 XJ. These are a perfect fit and bring the suspension back to OE specs. Super easy do-it-yourself project with great results.Some key tips on the Jeeps:- Spray all the bolts holding your shocks with PB Blaster to loosen up any potentially stuck/rusted bolts. Do this a day ahead of time to let them soak, then again before you get started unbolting.- Be EXTRA careful with the upper rear shock mounting bolts. People have tried loosening these and snapped the bolt head clean off. If that happens, it's a big problem. You will need to drill/tap for a new bolt hole, get some welding done, or even get up into the trunk to remove the carpeting and do some floor cutting with a grinder and cutting wheel. Don't be that guy! Loosen slowly yet firmly, tighten a bit, loosen a bit, tighten a bit, add more PB Blaster if needed and they should come out. When re-installing, use some...

      Perhaps it was the make and model of my car. When I ordered it did ask about make and model but did not differentiate between front and rear. I ordered 4 units. I had to send two back because the front and rear parts are different. AutoPartsWAY handled the return brilliantly. However because my shipping ticket and order ticket were wrong and the return was at the end of the promotional I was unable to take advantage of a rebate offer. (Big hassel.) Other than that, I am pleased with product.

      Put a set of these on my 99 jeep Cherokee XJ.They were installed along with new factory ride height rear springs. The ride is very nice on road. Lots of control at any speed. However the left rear one blew out after 3 months and 6k-ish miles. It took a pretty good pothole to do it though. Without a seat belt my head would have smacked the roof. So it was a hard hit. It was more dusk's fault than the shocks or mine. Still lousing one shock has made my jeep handle like crap. Thought I had a flat tire at first. If you off road a lot or hard choose a more expensive shock. Me, well I just ordered another set for the rear. After all the front shocks are still working great. I'll just haft to lookout for thous monster potholes. Cherokee owners, good luck removing your upper shock mounting bolts! Expect them to break and plan ahead accordingly.

      I have been repairing simple things on my vehicles, like shocks, for years. I am 70 now so I went to Pep Boys and the girl quoted me $220 for 2 shocks and installation. She was obviously an idiot so I ordered these and installed them myself in 30 minutes.They were a perfect fit and have worked flawlessly.

      I wish something like this would have come stock on my Crown Vic. It's not noticeably rougher riding with these installed. We drive with the car loaded with baggage on long trips and this keeps the car looking as though we have a normal load. It might be overzealous, but I'll say it anyway: People traveling with cars that look loaded down are targets for robbery and police surveillance. Your car handles usually noticeably different when the rear is sagging due to a heavy load. This sagging in the rear changes the alignment in the front as well, and causes changes in the driving characteristics. I'd say these should be stock in any car that has a trunk big enough to fill.

      was a near perfect fit for my 2007 honda fit sport. rear suspension needed to be replaced after hauling lots of heavy things. works great, even with trailer. a must for hauling anything in a honda fit!update February 2014: still holding up great. i see other fits much newer than mine on the road and shake my head when i see them practically dragging the back end with one passenger in the back seat. such an easy fix! all you need is a jack, stand/block for safety, basic tools/knowhow. it's literally 4 bolts. a must for every fit whether or not you tow/haul or carry passengers. turns your fit into a virtual pickup truck!

      This can be installed by one person easily...raise the vehicle by its frame until the tires are just about to raise off the ground. Install the shock to the upper shock mount. Use another jacking device to compress the shock and install to lower shock mount. By raising the vehicle by the frame first, you are decreasing the need to compress the shock to install it, therefore making installation much easier. These shocks should be handled and installed as if they are a coil spring strut, as this is basically what these are.

      Great price too ! arrived on-time with 2 day shipping. Installed all 4 easily but remember to purchase mounting hardware, grade 5, prior to work because the old hardware is rusty and probably not reusable. Use lots of penetrating oil too! Jeep ride improved 100% .

      Great shock absorber. Excellent upgrade from stock or bottom end shocks. They ride great, stiff but not too stiff. Will certainly buy these again when the time comes for replacement. I have these on the front of both my Suburban and S10; S10 has these in coil over form on the rear but I went with Reflex on the back of the Suburban.These things can handle dips at high speeds and the very uneven concrete pavement on the interstate wonderfully. The truck reacts great and handling has been improved. Potholes and other smaller road hazards dont faze these things.

      Pairs of these have been on my truck (a '55 GMC) for more than 15 years, giving it an extra inch clearance for towing. They work well, simple to install, the AutoPartsWAY price is right, and shipping is immediate. Plus, the color is black, not white as shown. Some time ago, they were painted white which necessitated an owner repaint, but I presume after enough complaints Monroe switched to black.

      I have a 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis, and most everyone who's owned one of these cars understands that like the Crown Victoria and Lincoln Continental, almost all parts for these cars built by Ford are interchangeable. So if you have any of these three cars from 1998 - 2002, these shocks will fit all.That being said, they should be just as easy or difficult to install, and just as influential to the effect of driving. I am happy with everything about the shocks and my experience in shipping with the exception of one small thing - I would like to have gained a more firm ride from these. My car had over 197,000 miles on it when I replaced them. The old shocks had not gotten to the point of bottoming out or noisy. I just felt the ride was too "floaty" with the old shocks and was certain the new shocks would cure that.Not so. while the ride has firmed up to some degree, the ride continues to exhibit too much "float". Maybe thats the way this car felt...

      I bought them as replacement for our Acura MDX. Price is great but other reviews that I read make me wonder if the quality is good enough that they will hold up over the next years. No problem with the installation.Of course professional handling through AutoPartsWAY.

      The shocks bolted right up, but I could not reuse the factory air lines, since they did not connect to the Monroe shocks. I had to use and the reroute the new lines. No big deal, but the installation took longer than I anticipated.

      I have a 1993 F-250 diesel, it's 4x4 and has 230,000 miles on what are probably the original shocks. You would not believe what a difference these shocks made. The truck drives almost as smooth as my wifes new subaru and when loaded with a 15,000lb trailer they work just as well.I'm very satisfied with these shocks and installation was a snap, two bolts each and were easy to get to.

      Good buy for air shocks, installation was easy, only slightly more difficult than standard shocks. I didnt use the plastic clips for the airlines, I just zip tied the lines up out of the way. The only Issue I have with these is they seem to leak down after a while.....

      Much improved body control on my 98 Buick. Still a soft ride, but pogoing is gone. I've only had on for 20k, but good so far. Also surprisingly easy to install, but be careful not to over-torque bolts.

      I purchased these shock absorbers, front and rear and front end stabilizer, to replace the OEM shocks and stabilizer that came with the Jeep. I had already had the stabilizer replaced about 4 months ago and it was replaced with an OEM stabilizer but the 'Death Wobble' was still present every now and then in certain areas. I had these shocks and stabilizer installed and my Jeep drives like a new vehicle and the 'Death Wobble' has completely disappeared, so far. One of the best things I've done for my Jeep. Great Purchased and Experience.

      I installed these on a 2008 F-150 work truck with an 8 ft bed. They initially gave me a 3+ inch lift when measuring from the shop floor to the bottom of the rear bumper. They have about 3 thousand miles on them now and have settled, as expected, so now the lift is just under 2 inches when compared to the stock shocks. These shocks are installed on a truck with a 1500lb load in the bed every single day. They are an incredible improvement over stock when loaded. They take the weight without sagging and still manage a reasonable ride. I've put 1.1 TONS in the bed of the truck and driven 30 miles without ever hitting the bump stops. It's impossible to get them to bottom out. With an empty truck bed they are a bit bouncy but overall I am very happy...with one exception...they squeak A LOT!It's nearly unbearable, every speed bump, every time I accelerate hard from a stop, every driveway entrance, its constant. I finally figured out the cause was the piston rod itself that...

      i looked for these for awhile, somehow when i was looking for something else i came across these. pain in the ass to install in my 64' ford galaxie 500 4dr. sedan. had to compress them about 5 1/2 inches. put car on ramp and used bumper jack to raise for clearance and use a crow bar to guide shock into place. but the result is fantastic, raise it up about two inches and made the ride steady and smooth. very happy camper.

      This is stock replacement for my 1957 Ford F250 pickup. They were a perfect fit. Only downside is that one of the shocks arrived with only one set of hardware instead of two sets per shock. I was able to make do with the old rubber bushings and hardware.

      I used this shock for a 2003 yukon denali XL. They fit perfect with the Autoride system. Taking the old shocks out was a bit of a hassle as I had to cut off one of the struts because of a seized nut due to rust. Installation was easy. The ride is excellent so far.For the rear of the autoride system, use monroe 40032. I wrote a review on those too.Very important, when you order these, you might want to order the electrical connector that goes on top of these shocks as mine were rusted out. This is the part # 88986417, and it's available on AutoPartsWAY.I paid under 200 dollars each for these shocks on AutoPartsWAY.5 stars for the price and part as a whole package.And yes they are black, not orange. who cares.Stop your whining.Goodluck.

      Normally i would give monroe shocks 5 stars because it's a great value in price and performance, but in this case the lower mounting holes would not line up with the cars mounting holes so i had to enlarge them using a step drill bit. They are comfortable shocks though for my particular application bilstein shocks are the premium shock to install and kyb's come second in choice. For the price on non sports cars monroes are great shocks.

      I bought a used 2002 F250 diesel and it had original shocks on it. I shopped around and decided to go with a name brand for great value. I ordered front and rear shocks, with my prime membership, I had one set delivered the next day and following set within 2 days. I'm no mechanic, but have fixed minor things myself, I decided to attempt replacement myself. I read some forums before doing this and glad that I did, the nut on one was 18mm and other was 15mm. All my metric socket sets skip the 18mm, so I went out and bought a 18mm socket. Removed front tires for replacement of front shocks and for rear, just dropped the spare tire. I had all four changed in little over and hour.

      What I liked-the color.What i didn't like-the bushings/washers that come with the shocks. They seem to be small in size and girth compared to the OEM's. Does that mean anything? I'm not sure but when you are a DIY'r in the middle of a shock job, you want everything to look the way it should.The other thing is that the "Does fit your car tool should be upgraded to account for the vehicles that have more than a standard suspension on them. I nearly bought the wrong back shocks just because the functionality of it will fit said the shocks would fit. The new shocks seemed to be about an inch shorter but stiffer then the ones I replaced. That makes sense.What I did like was that I got the shocks faster than I was prepared to actually install them. NICE. We'll see if the DW says anything about the ride before I spring her about the cost of the Nivomat shocks that are going to be replaced next for the rear.

      These are great replacement shocks for a 2000 Suburban 1500. I tow a boat on occasion and noticed a lot of sway with the (yes, I know) original shocks. These fixed the issue and the land yacht rides as smooth as ever even when empty and not hauling the boat. Wish I had changed them out years ago!

      Tried to install in a 1990 colony park station wagon. The width of the coil was contacting something --I can't remember now-- and I had to return them because it didn't fit.I left 4 stars anyway, because of course, this says NOTHING about how good the shocks themselves are, and it might just be AutoPartsWAY's parts database, or a fluke that my car is the one listed model that has difficulties.But just a heads up, they are bulkier than shocks without the outer coil.

      NOTE: This contains 2 SHOCKS, you only need to add one of this to your cart to get 2 shocks, they are SOLD IN PAIRS.That being said, I installed these on my 05 f150 to replace the OEM shocks at 107k miles. Regular unloaded ride did not change much, except for better on bumpy roads, but not any more harsh. I'd say more like the OEM ride would have been when new. Now where these excel is when you drop a trailer on the back. NO SAG at all! My trailer used to "level" my truck when hooked up, now when the trailer is on the back of the truck, you can't even tell, NO MORE SAG. Also, when towing, the trailer no longer makes the back of the pickup bounce when going over bumps, its soo solid you'd swear the trailer wasn't even back there.Easy to install, don't even need to take the tires off. Just place jack under the FRAME of the truck in the rear (do not put jack under the rear diff!!). Unbolt bottom shock bolt, then the top, and remove old shock. Bolt...

      I had recently acquired a mid-90's F250 that had a home-made flatbed installed, came with the 'light duty' 4 leaf rear springs from the factory. With a load of hay bales, the truck would squat down to the point that the tires nearly touched the home-made flatbed, which sits rather low compared to a factory style bed.I ordered these springs from AutoPartsWAY, they arrived quickly and once they were installed, I now have a good 3" of additional clearance carrying the same load, which means no more rubbing from the rear tires.Very happy, Monroe builds good stuff and AutoPartsWAY had the best price and always fast shipping.

      I had a shop tell me that my car needs shocks so I picked up the rears to start. Pretty simple to install. I didn't give them 5 stars as I am not sure they did much to improve the ride but they do the job. I installed them last week so I don't have to many miles on the car.FYI, if you are installing on a e36 sedan as I did, you need to have a jack ready when installing to raise the brake rotor to fit the shock. Also, in the trunk, you will need to pull away the carpet and foam insulation to get to the top bolts. One person can do this job.I am thinking of replacing the struts with the monroe as well, great price.

      I have had OEM, Monroe Reflex and now the Sensa-Tracs on my 99 Mountaineer (Explorer). The Reflexes handled better, but the ride was way to rough. These Sensa-Tracs are a lot softer and feel more like an upscale SUV. There was hardly any body roll with the Reflex, there is body roll with these. Overall, I like these better as a daily driver shock. I have not towed anything with these yet.

      It took me almost a year to get around to installing these, but they have made a much difference in the back end ride. I had very little clearance in the rear and when I ever tried to pull a trailer it rode right almost off the ground. These have made a big difference that is easy to see and feel.

      After 200,000 miles, I thought that it was time for new shocks! I didn't realize how much I needed them until these were installed. These provide a very smooth ride! The price was excellent! They installed very easily, so easy in fact, I had my 11 year old son help install them...I had to loosen and tighten the bolts of coarse :) Thanks!

      Very easy to install, puts the back of the Ranger quite a bit higher than old destroyed OEM shocks and handles loads really well.They don't ship compressed- however...1) bolt top of shock in place2) position floor jack under shock and jack bottom up into bracket3) insert bottom boltI'm 5 foot 3, 130 lbs, and was able to install these easily by myself.(Monroe regularly does a manu rebate in October, "shocktober")EDIT: The original Ranger that the shocks were installed on was totalled, but when I purchased another Ranger and replaced its shocks- I bought these shocks again. Solid performance, truck-like ride, and no issues from either truck.

      These seem like a good replacement set of shocks & struts. The price quite a savings over purchasing locally. Delivery to my door is way better than driving anywhere. Unfortunately, the two struts sent to me didn't fit even though the part # was verified prior to ordering. The 2 shocks fit great. Fortunately, AutoPartsWAY took good care of arranging a return.

      04 Jan, 2013
      I like these kits because they don't require you to perform dangerous operations with compressing the springs. Also, with the new springs, the ride height of the vehicle is restored. You may want to have the alignment checked once installing these however as there is a slight amount of play in the two bolts that connect the spindle to the strut. Also, it is possible that the increased ride height will affect camber and toe-in settings.The directions that came with the struts were printed in multiple languages and had most of the information needed for the amateur installer, however, it was missing critical information - Torque values for the bolts.

      I put this on my 1990 Ram 250 4X4. This shock made a very different ride from the other shocks that were on the truck. Smoother, better control, rebound was almost not even noticed. I'm hard on a truck, and if these shock work like this in a year, I'll continue to buy them as long as they are made. Monroe lived up to their name with this one.

      Gotta be honest I bought these because of the price point. I put these on a 1999 Crown Vic. PI. Now that I went through that trouble of replacing them and it has been a few months since I installed them. I would have bought the more expensive brand. All in all, These are not bad and if money is tight. They perform good. ride is comfortable.

      These are good for the money if you are trying to save a few bucks. After having them for a couple of months they are just fine. Personally after installing them on my 99 Crown Victoria PI I would have now went with the more expensive brand. The ride is comfortable.

      I installed these shocks on my 1990 Chevrolet 1500 1/2 ton 4X2 recently restored pickup. Being a full sized truck and having experience with Chevy & GMC 1/2 ton trucks these are the PERFECT shocks. They are not the cheapest Monroe shock, but considering you'll be very satisfied with the performance for years to come. From the moment I had them installed and the trucks alignment done and a new set of B.F.Goodrich tires the 1990 Silverado rides as smooth as a baby's ^%$. You'll swear the truck is new, brand new. They handle with ease, and very durable and aren't scared of a bed load. Monroe is an old company in auto suspensions and these shocks live up to the pedigree. You won't be sorry with this set of shocks.

      I purchased both front and rear Sensa-Tracs for a 1995 Corvette I had recently purchased. The car still still had the original shocks on it and the ride was pretty harsh. They made a dramatic difference, both in the ride and handling. I think they are worth considering.

      I wanted to keep the Autoride system working like new on my 2002 Yukon Denali and didn't want to spend a fortune at the dealer. These Monroe shocks were exact fit replacements for the original Delphi shocks. After researching online I found these on AutoPartsWAY for about $100 less than anywhere else. They were easy to install and my Denali rides like new again.Don't be surprised if they arrive all black instead of black/orange. The picture isn't accurate (based on what I received).

      I never realized until after I had bought these rear shocks from somewhere else that I could have bought these at AutoPartsWAY. I won't make the same mistake twice as I will buy my front Monroe Reflex shocks from AutoPartsWAY. Anyways I just put these on my 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 and WOW what a difference. I have had Bilsteins on another truck and these are very comparable to those for much less. There is much less wheel hop and sway. I can tell especially while cornering.

      You know that older car feeling. My 2004 Lincoln Town Car had not been responding as usual since it turned 105,000 miles. Well, after looking at a few new Lincoln models, (that MKS and MKZ are really interesting - no hybrid thank you), I started asking mechanic friends of mine what to do. They all told me that it was past time to replace my shocks. They were still the original equipment. After having a Ford dealer in Redlands tell me I needed to spend $1,900.00 on a complete new air suspension system, I was even more motivated to find another, less expensive, solution.Searching the web I researched several companies and products that would fit my Town Car. Not wanting to order the incorrect units, I spoke with a tech rep at Monroe, who told me exactly what I needed. And, Monroe currently has a buy 4 get 1 free program in effect.After further searching, once again AutoPartsWAY to the Rescue!I got four shocks for less than half what the dealer had quoted me, and had them...

      The shocks work great and fit great. They came with all air lines and fitting that you need. Would defiantly buy them again.

      Product was as advertised, and I was able to install in my driveway in under 30 minutes, without even removing the rear tires. Only worry was when package arrived, and the two shocks were rolling around inside the larger box, with basically no packaging protection. My first thought was that they were going to be damaged when I opened the box.

      I used this shock on a 03 Yukon Denali XL. easy to replace, once on the truck all my rear suspension noises went away. The old shocks air bladder had holes in them. and if you shop it right at AutoPartsWAY, it can be bought for a real low price. Don't listen to the parts checker on AutoPartsWAY, some times it will say this part doesn't fit your car. But I called up Monroe, this part, 40032, is for the long versions of the Yukon, suburban, and Cadillacs with the Autoride/ Z55 systems.

      Well I purchased these shocks to go on to a lifted WK Grand Cherokee and they work great for that. The ride is stiffer yet comfortable and it is also very comfortable on road as off. Great for towing or having heavy loads in the back. I can put a 21 foot bayliner on the hitch and the back just stays up. No sagging at all! Good product!

      I have used the Monroe SensaTrac shocks on my trucks and cars for over 500,000 miles. Nothing special about them however my cars and trucks have always handled the road well and the shocks seem to last forever.

      Were easy to install on my F150 and now can pull my 5th wheel without the horrendous sag in the rear. I also cut a full load of hardwood without the rear sagging. A little stiffer ride, but hardly noticeable. Would highly recommend these shocks for anyone carrying a load and want to help with sagging.

      I installed these on my 2007 RAM 2500 Cummins. The ride was slightly smoother when I wasn't towing my 11,000# 5th wheel. However, when towing, they did not provide the ride I expected. The front end does a lot of floating and is too soft.When I come to a stop, the front end will jounce excessively as though the shocks were worn.If I had to do it over, I would have gone with Bilstiens or a heavier Monroe.

      I put these on my truck in hopes that they would maintain the ride height up to 1200 additional pounds like monroe claims. This did not happen... I think that the shocks do make the back of the truck ride an inch or two higher and they do well when loaded. I have put some pretty heavy loads on the old ranger and haven't broke anything important yet. When I say heavy, I mean where the guys at the home improvement store look at you funny when you pull up in a ranger to pick get your stuff. I usually count mudflaps touching the ground on bumps as fully loaded and I've had it there a couple of times. Like I said, it survived so I guess these shocks are worth their while...

      Added these shocks to my lowered GMC truck for a little added rear support and softened ride. I must say that they did the job (the ride is much improved) but the supplied plastic T fitting is pretty cheap and doesn't work well at all. It's a real pain finding an air chuck that will fill them... and even then you really have to work at it to get air in. I've been looking online all over for a brass replacement with little luck.Improving that one item would make these a perfect setup! Still, they do work very well except for that.

      I purchased these to replace my stock rear-end shocks on my 2007 Silverado Classic. I also installed the Monroe Reflex 911503 on the front-end of the truck. These are excellent shocks! They ride slightly stiffer than stock shocks but make the truck handle better than new, especially when youre trailering or hauling anything. Local autoshop wanted nearly $70 per shock for these, plus $45 for installation - I paid $45 per shock on AutoPartsWAY, free shipping, no tax and I installed them in 15 minutes.The picture is a little misleading, the shock looks like the picture but the boot isnt a rubber boot, its a hard plastic sleeve boot thats made to resemble a rubber collapsible boot similar to what offroad shocks come with.I would highly recommend these shocks and wish I had purchased and installed them sooner.

      AutoPartsWAY.com is the place to shop. From the Middle East, we can always rely on our orders being arrival time within 4 to 10 days from the date of order. We believe in buying USA first and this will help keep some of our people gainfully employed. The majority of Westerners believe in shopping AutoPartsWAY.com first. These shock are great and I had them installed the day they arrived. The mechanic asked me, where did I get these shocks and I told him from "America". The mechanic stated that in the 15 years he had been installing shock, he had never seen or installed shock as strong as these. My 2000 GMC Jimmy is like a new vehicle. I can take speed bumps and curves like it's a brand new vehicle. Great Shocks.

      It so hard to find parts for the long forgotten ford pinto. I have been working on my project for about six months now and parts are hard to come by. I found these shocks on AutoPartsWAY-did a lot of looking on ebay but wasn't impressed by the prices. I bought these because they were way below what ebayers were asking and my local auto parts store. Even lower than rockauto! I'll definitely look into AutoPartsWAY more often when I'm looking for pinto parts.

      Unlike the previous review my items arrived with no problems. I swapped these out on my 96 4D Explorer that I am pretty sure had the stock shocks still on it, it used to sway like a boat when I hit bumps and now it is solid, almost have to get used to driving it again but in a good way. Much improved, fairly easy swap.

      These shocks are the best for the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor if we consider performance VS. price.I bought these shocks along with Monroe 550051 Severe Service Shock Absorbers and wow, a day night deference compared to stock shocks. The CVPI became more surefooted during acceleration and cornering and on bumpy roads (maybe they are not as good as Bilstein HD Shocks, but they are half the price) and with hauling, the CVPI does not bottom like before.The ride become more sporty, firm and rigid. Some people may consider it harsh, but I really like it this way.

      I am using a 2000 4x4 1/2 ton Ford pickup for a service truck for one of my machines. It is loaded with a big tool box loaded with tools, a 95 gallon diesel tank, a torch and bottles, a compressor, a generator, spare parts, motor oil, hydro oil etc. It gets to go to some road less remote job sites and the bumper and hitch were working like a plow behind the truck. I changed to these shocks and the problem was solved. The installation took about two hours with most of the time being spent getting the old shocks off. The truck sits level even when pulling a trailer. I know that a better solution would be to buy a bigger pickup; but this truck was in the fleet and is now dedicated to one machine and with these shocks it does the job.

      I purchased these shocks as a direct replacement for my 2002 Escalade. I wanted to retain my electronic ride (Autoride) but avoid paying $600 a piece for OEM front shocks. I'm more than thrilled with the results. These shocks are a direct plug and play replacement. Truck rides like its brand new. Highly Recommended.

      I love my little 2003 Tacoma, but the ride quality was not up to par with 92,000 miles, skinny tires and worn out shocks. I could see the shiny spots on the frame where the bump stops were hitting. I put some 15 x 7 wheels and 225-70 tires on it recently, which helped with stability and ride, but the new Monroe SensaTracs really made the difference. I wanted a more stable, solid ride, with better dampening of road bumps, and that's what these provide. For this daily-driver I did not want performance handling and a buckboard-stiff ride, and these are nowhere close to that. I've used SensaTracs with success before on other vehicles, and when combined with the Buy 3- Get One free rebate, AutoPartsWAY's low price, and free shipping, they're a winner for me again. Took about 45 minutes to install. or some reason, AutoPartsWAY didn't ship the rear shocks as quickly, so I haven't put them on yet- I'm sure they'll make a positive difference as well.

      These dropped right into an '86 Caprice Classic Wagon. They did lift the back end by and inch or two, but since it was a little low anyway, no harm. Not a real significant change in ride quality. I'd buy these again in a second.

      Had to rate a 3 because, sent me one shock that was defective, front shock hole, for bolt was wrong. I should have opened each box and checked bolt hole size. Had to send back and get another one, already had damaged old shock getting it off, had to wait couple days with truck jacked up. If you have a problem, find the call me now option on AutoPartsWAY and get it taken care of, pretty quickly, with the INDIA accented dude. Got shock and put it on. Seems to be working OK. I was really expecting a more heavy duty shock, but it is what I ordered. Heard good things about Bilstein shocks, but these are good enough for my old truck.....

      Well in my case i was in a low budget so i took a chance to order this item and it pay off for me the items came fast and they ware in a seal new box and the items are new as promise and they ware so easy to install just took 40min i recommend that you check monroe.com to check for the item # that will fit your car and will make it easy to find it on AutoPartsWAY just with the item # over all i highly recommend this seller and this item i save over $500 by ordering all 4 shocks and struts on AutoPartsWAY only $239.00 with free shipping hey better then pay over $800 some ware else with installation i also recommend that you order the dust covers they don't come with it but they are just a few bucks and not really need it but it can help keep a longer life and keep it clean the part. GOOD LUCK

      These shocks installed in 30 minutes including removing the old ones. They were a perfect fit & WOW what a difference. The ride is firm & controlled. They are also heavier duty than the regular sensor-matic shocks which will give you more load handling. If you tow anything, these are a must. No leaning & better braking & more road grip. I would definitely recommend.

      Monroe makes a good shock absorber, but not a great shock absorber. Still, for the price charged, one can expect to get good service from these gas charged units. If one is looking for a more heavy duty or performance unit, look toward Bilstein, Koni, Rancho and some of the other more expensive units. I am quite satisfied with these shocks on their current usage, a stock 1988 Chevrolet K1500 (4 wheel drive) pick-up truck. I like having the ability to add a bit of air pressure to the inflation fitting so I can get the rear ride height back up to where it should be when I am towing. Then, once the towing is done, I can let the air back out and the truck rides at its normal height once again. Nice! As a bit of caution, heed the instructions and do not over tighten the tube connections. Just finger tight works. Anything more just distorts the tube and restricts air flow.

      These and matching (front shocks) were purchased for a 93 Jeep Wrangler. The current OEM shocks had see better days with 70,000 miles on them. I would recommend these for the price as they brought my highway/local driving back to original ride quality. As always, AutoPartsWAY Prime shipping is quick and accurate.

      Strongly recommended for load carrying vehicles, particularly Rv's, Stepvans or Trucks. Gives you a firm controlled ride. Give it a 5 star rating. Make sure the installer has proper equipment since it has to be partially collapsed in order to mount it. If you are a Do-it-yourself, its a 2 man job, but you won't be disappointed with the result if a firm ride is what you want.

      I recently had to do major car repair. The AutoPartsWAY site allowed me to configure to look to make sure parts are compatible with my vehicle. This made getting my shocks, struts and strut mounts very easy.The pricing was vastly cheaper than the auto parts store and the shipping was very fast.I have a friend with the same type of car and needs the same work done to it. I will be getting the parts from AutoPartsWAY again.

      I purchased these shocks a few weeks back for my 2003 Dodge Caravan SE and I just got around to installing them last night.Installation was a breeze and only took me a total of 30 minutes! Kudos to Dodge for making the rear shocks unbelievably easy to replace! This has got to be the easiest shock replacement I have ever done!1. Jack up the rear end and place jack stands under the axle.2. Remove tires.3. Remove upper shock mounting bolts.4. Remove lower shock mounting bolts.5. Install lower side of shock first, but do not tighten all the way.6. Place your jack on the body frame and raise the body so the upper mounting holes match.7. Install upper mounting bolts and tighten to specified torque.8. Re-tighten lower mounting bolts.9. Re-install tires10. Remove jack stands.I did notice that the height of the rear end was slightly raised, but only by an inch or two at the most.The ride...

      I installed this shock on the front of my stock 1974 FJ40 and it went on easily, without problems. If you are looking for rear shocks for an FJ40, stay away from the Monroe Sensa-Trac 58497 Load Adjusting Shocks. AutoPartsWAY and Monroe say it will fit but they are at least 6 inches too long, and come fully extended. This makes them impossible to install, even with a coil spring compressor tool. You are welcome to try, but I am returning mine.The old shocks that these replaced were completely worn down. You could compress and extend them with your hands and they maintained their position. After installing these shocks the body had less roll in turns and bumps no longer caused a jarring painful jittery motion that you can feel in your spine, especially in the back. It almost rode like a newer truck. The ride is not plush, but significantly better than with the worn out leaking ones. I did some light off roading through a rutted and pitted trail, and drove over those concrete...

      These are good Heavy Duty shocks. These are NOT for a comfortable ride, they are for heavy loads, for that they serve their purpose quite well. Good shock, but I should have bought them from a private seller, and not AutoPartsWAY.

      Shocks give a very nice ride but watch out on the install of the front ones. I sheared the left front shock mount off when removing the old one. I had sprayed it with PB Blaster but it still sheared off. Other side will be different, right. More PB Blaster and heat the bolt with a torch. Start turning and it's coming off like butter and then, there goes the other one too. No worries, just drill a hole in the existing stud and thread it to put a bolt in to hold the shock on snug. Watch out though, don't snap the tap off in the new hole. After one succesful adaptation that was my second mistake. Haven't corrected that yet but the shocks are great. Rears install like a piece of cake. On my 96 Ford Ranger pull the spare tire down to access the mounts easy. Great ride though!

      Had them on my pickup (front and rear) for a while now and they made a noticeable difference in the ride. Have held up to heavy loads well. Not much more to say, its a shock. Quality is what I would expect from Monroe.

Now I can feel the difference in handling; especially hard turns and bumpy roads. Great product and easy installation (you don't really need a mechanic to replace these. Make sure you spray some WD40 on the old nuts overnight.)

My guess is it would be difficult to find this shock for the same price delivered to your door. Can't wait to get the shocks installed on our Excursion. Please keep the exceptional values coming AutoPartsWAY. Your business plan and model is exceptional!

      No complaints. My stock shocks on my 2000 Ford Excursion seemed OK when I pulled them off after 90k miles, but these seem better.

      I replaced all four shocks on my 2003 Silverado 2wd with these. They work great. The ride is a little tighter, which I like. These are smooth and predictible empty or loaded. I haven't had any problems with these even while towing my camper. I would/will buy these again.

      These shocks were a replacement of the failing factory shocks in my 2001 Tahoe. Install was just a simple bolt in. The first test drive I was a little concerned with the extra bounce back the springs added, but once I put a couple hundred miles on them they are smooth again. Have not been able to test the load assist springs yet, but once summer kicks in again we will see how the truck sits with the camper attached. Was able to test the emergency maneuvers capabilities due to a deer that ran in front of me. Truck stood it's ground without much leaning or tires squealing. So far I am happy with my purchase.

      Great shocks. Huge difference over the OEM's. Parts were missing two out of the four sealed boxes though.

      I ordered these for my 1998 Toyota Sienna which was riding pretty rough on bumps. AutoPartsWAY had free shipping and it arrived earlier than expected. Installation was really simple and took about 30 minutes for both sides. Most difficult part was reaching in the back to loosen the top nut; had to stretch. I have a much smoother ride now!

      Easy install, good solid quality, fit perfectly, made a huge improvement.I installed them on my 1965 Pontiac Catalina Convertible, they improved the ride, and gave the car the stance that I wanted it to have.

      Being only 17, i've never replaced shocks I just used basic common sense and a couple hours later my classic car was raised a couple of inches with these air shocks. I love them, one side of the car was sagging then I filled em up with 80 psi and it raised right up and they feel great. It came with everything in the picture the only thing different was that instead of white they were black... not that it matters for me, they were still Monroes. 5/5* [=

      I purchased the Monroe Sensa-Trac Shock Absorbers for my Jeep Grand Cherokee. My son, a machanic, recommended Monroe Sensa-Trac because he liked to use them for all his customers because they are reliable. I checked the Monroe web site and found that they make 3 versions of the Monroe shocks for my jeep. An economy version, a street version, and heavy version for off-road. I chose the street version Sensa-Trac (front # 37161 & BACK # 37162) because that's how I drive the most and the price was good (low $40 range). I found them a good buy and easy to put on the Jeep. This is a good shock to purchase. Check around for the best price.

      I installed these in no time with the parts included. They came with everything you would ever need to install them. Great product does exactly what I needed them to do. Would recommend them to anyone. AutoPartsWAY is a great place to buy. I would have never though to look here for the shocks but I did a google search and here they where at a great price. Thumbs up to AutoPartsWAY again for fast excellent service.

      Good shocks for my 2500 HD, the ride is better, but they do not hold up to a load. The rear end will drop more than with the old wornout blistens. Great shock if you will not be hauling a load. Improves the ride making it smoother and softer, but with the softer rides comes less hauling. Should have purchased a HD shock for the load.Too bad they do not make a soft riding shock that can hanlde a load. But great if not hauling very often.Jake

      they installed fairly easily on my extended 2002 pontiac montana.the OEM airlines connected without modification.they're slightly smaller in diameter than the OEM, but that might be a good thing. i discovered that my pass-side brake line was rubbing the rubber boot (which was probably the reason the compressor ran so much).there was no airline kit included, even it's mentioned in the description.

      Purchased shocks for 2002 Olds Silo. They worked great. These replacements we're slightly smaller in diameter than originals. However, they work fine.

      This part is the exact replacement for the OEM shocks. The dealer quoted me almost $700 to replace the shocks. With a little help from a friend, was able to install these in about half an hour. Now the van levels off like it's supposed to and it rides great. The web description says the hoses and fittings are included; they're not, but didn't need them anyway.

      01-08-2014Just recently found out that when I put the shocks on, I had turned the washers to the inside. The washers, according to the mechanic, should poit to the outside. News to me, but the guy is pretty reputableDisappointed in quality of shock. Mainly because it is made in USA and I expected better quality assurance. Also, there were sharp edges, so be careful when handling. Seems Monroe decided to make their grommets look like the original washer, so they did not include metal washers that contact frame. What I mean by that is that the upper grommets should have been sandwiched between two washers. Now the upper gromments contact right into the frame instead of sitting on another metal washer.

      Outstanding buy. They were easily installed in about 45 minutes. My S10 rides a lot better especially under load. Highly recommend this product.

      Perfect fit for a 1989 Jeep Cherokee. Easy installation with just a few tools. Greatly improved handling in normal driving. Off road use is better but I would recommend other shocks for that purpose. I don't go off road much anyway.

      I have over 80K miles on front and rear Gas Magnums on a Dodge B150 work van. They rusted up quickly but after 7 years the brown hulks have not broken or leaked and still operate. The OEM Dodge shocks were leaking at 25K. I'm a KYB person by birth but they rust up just as fast. A Good replacement shock.

      Works well in most conditions. Allows a little more vibration of the back than I'd like when bed empty, but a large improvement over factory shocks.
