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.

        Did dual shocks in the front, and changed out the backs as well. Backs went in with no issues, the fronts I had to rob hardware from the old shocks, as the mount changed cuz it is duals.

        Comments about Monroe Gas-Magnum Shock Absorber:

        Truck rode very rough as it is a F350. When I took out the old shocks I could push and pull them in and out with ease. After replacing with the new shocks the truck rode significantly smoother. One item of note, since the shocks are very large you have to plan ahead when you put them in. I secured the top of the shock in place prior to cutting the holding band and then guided the shock into place on the lower bolt. If you fail to do it this way you will have to jack the bottom of the shock into place. I am big guy and could not compress the shock with one hand and try to slide the bottom bolt in with the other.
        I would recommend this component. Great value and great ride.
