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:

      The best way to enhance the ride and handling characteristics of your vehicle even if you are a casual, or like we used to say a "Sunday" (God help us) driver.
      If you make any suspension improvements such as perfomance bushings and add these shocks you will feel like you are driving a new car. Although I changed the shocks rubber bushings to urethane,because of my driving style, the factory installed rubber bushings will give you a great ride/handling/steering control improvement without having to spend really big bucks, and you get a great warranty in the process. That is especially nice for people that like to drive their vehicle for many many years.
      I will continue to buy this brand for all my vehicles.
