              Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

              I was planning on going on a trip to Virginia, and had some time to check out the front shocks on my 1992 Chevy S10 Blazer. The shocks that had been on there looked like they had been on there for the past 20 years, and had ceased to function properly. Every bump was highly noticeable and there was a ton of nose-diving when breaking.
              I installed these shocks in an afternoon, getting the old bolts free was the hardest part. These installed easily, and unlike the old shocks, actually took a little compressing to get into place, which is a great improvement.
              The ride condition of the vehicle improved greatly and with the new shocks, the breaks on the vehicle can function properly. The vehicle can handle going around curves on the highway without any leaning, and it handles bumps better.
              As far as anything that isn't good about these, I've not really noticed any problems. I went from shocks that probably had 118,000 miles on them to these. These shocks are doing exactly what I want them to.

                Changing the front shocks on my blazer was easy and the new shocks went right in. Noticed a big difference in the ride of the truck right away. Will be changing the rear shocks very soon. Great shock at a very affordable price.

                                  Both shocks and struts serve the same purpose, to dampen the vibrations of a mechanical system. The difference is that a strut is an integral part of the suspension whereas a shock is just an add-on damper.
