The Monroe® Gas-Magnum® truck shock absorber is designed for mid to full size, hard working pick-up trucks and vans. These units provide firm control without a harsh ride.

Product Features:
  • 1-3/8 inch Bore: Lower operating pressure than standard 1 inch bore units
  • 2 inch Reserve Tube: More fluid for more consistent performance.
  • 5/8 inch Piston Rod: Heavy-duty nitrocarburized rod for long service life. On non-dust shield units only
  • All Weather Fluid: Contains special modifiers to reduce friction and ensure smooth rod reaction.
  • Full Displaced Valving: Better valving range on both the compression and extension cycles of the unit for a smooth comfortable ride.
  • Nitrogen Gas Charged: For improved ride and handling, helps maintain tire to road contact by reducing aeration - on most applications
  • Sintered Iron Piston: Stronger than traditional metals, enhances durability for longer service life.
  • Special Seal: 'Self-lubricating' fluid seal designed to retain gas without excessive wear or friction.

Disappointing performance

Comments about Monroe Gas-Magnum Shock Absorber:

Installed on the front of my 2007 RAM 250 with a Cummins turbo diesel. I tow a 38' 5th wheel. The front end bounces and floats when driving or coming to a stop. The shocks might work on a 1500, but they're too light duty for my 2500 with the heavy diesel. It's actually resulting in the front tires wearing. Will find a heavier duty shock to replace them with.

    Comments about Monroe Gas-Magnum Shock Absorber:

    I have used Monroe Shocks for many years. They are the best shocks for the money. Buying online was very easy and I just drove down to the store and picked them up. Will order the same way again.
