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.

    Installation instructions.

      Hi Richard, glad to assist you! Here is the instructions to install the shocks. Raise the vehicle with the floor jack by placing the jack head on a frame rail and pumping the
      lever until a wheel is in the air. Place a jack stand close to the floor jack, on the frame rail, for support. Remove the wheel by turning all lug nuts counterclockwise, then pulling the wheel from the hub. Place the wheel aside. Turn the lower shock mount bolt's nut counterclockwise, but do not remove it entirely. Leave it loosened on the bolt. Turn the top mount bolt counterclockwise and slide it out of the shock's eyelet. Some models, especially GM, have twin vertical screws holding the shock in with a mount plate to dissipate force. Turn these screws counterclockwise and remove the plate in the same manner. Remove the lower mount nut entirely, and slide the bottom shock eyelet from the bolt. The shock is now free, and can be manipulated out of the car. Replace the old shock with the Monroe by positioning it into the top mount first, then securing its mount bolts or screws by turning them clockwise until they are tight. Cut the keeper strap present on all new Monroe shocks, which will allow it to decompress slowly. As it passes the lower mount bolt, slide it onto the bolt. If you miss the chance, then compress the shock and try again. Once the shock is on the bolt, tighten the mount nut clockwise until snug. Replace the wheel by turning the lug nuts clockwise, in an alternating pattern. Lower the vehicle from the jack stands with the floor jack. Repeat the entire process on the remaining shocks.
