work great

Comments about Monroe Gas-Magnum RV Shock Absorber:

These shocks are high quality, easy to install and work great so far, but most shocks do in the beginning anyway. I'd like to hear from someone who has had them on for 5 years or so.

Comments about Monroe Gas-Magnum RV Shock Absorber:

These shock absorbers are heavy duty for one ton and over applications. I am a compettitive driver and builder of race components. A lot of the times folks ask me to build coilover shocks for their race cars. These automotive shocks have the largest piston shaft I have seen. When I build a race car product I always over engineer it for safety. These shock absorbers have not failed me yet and I have been using monroe products for over twenty five years.
