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.

    Comments about Monroe Gas-Magnum Shock Absorber:

    This is the second truck I put them on. First truck is 2007 Chevy 2500, second truck 2011 F350 both trucks had about 65,000 miles when replaced. These shocks are far better then factory and much better then overpriced Rancho shocks. A great value, priced right for the quality you get.

      At 130000 miles I figured it was about time to get new shocks. Wish I had done it sooner. Went from a rough riding Buckboard to a Smooth riding 2500 Ram again. My kidneys really appreciate the new ride.
