Check Vehicle Fit

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. With up to twice the fluid capacity of standard 1 inch bore shocks, Monroe® Gas-Magnum® truck shocks work more efficiently with less effort.

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.

        • Q:

          I own an '08 Dodge Ram 3500 6.7ltr Cummins Mega Cab 4x4 Dually. The truck still has the same shocks that it came from the factory with. After 120,000 miles, I'm pretty sure I need new shocks. I'm wanting to find a shock that will give me a good smooth ride for as little as possible because I'm wanting to put a suspension lift on it this fall. The problem is that if I hit a bump or pot hole now the truck starts to shake like it was dropped into a blender because the shocks are basically gone.

            I'm glad to assist, Stan! Nice truck! You're absolutely correct, 120,000 miles is a lot for stock shocks. Monroe offers a great value with the Monroe Gas-Magnum Shock Absorber (Part No. 34522 [front] and Part No. 34521 [rear]). These units provide firm control without a harsh ride.
