      Comments about Monroe Gas-Magnum Severe Service Shock Absorber:

      I'm using this on my '02 Mercedes Sprinter. They were easy to instal (less than an hour and a half total) and so far they feel much more firm than the old stock struts. They were on sale and I got a deal for ordering them online, so the price was right, too. The true test is the longevety, but so far, I'm happy and the van feels firm and tight.

          A:

          Automotive shock absorbers have a recommended service interval and usually that's between three years, thirty-six thousand miles up to five years, sixty thousand miles. It depends on the type and make of your vehicle and what type of shocks or struts that were installed on it.
