      These must be for a lighter vehicle than the chevy astro I'm using them on. I still get a bouncy ride as if my old shocks were still on the vehicle.

        Gas Matic shocks have always been quality replacement parts and still are. These shocks were simple to put on. Great durability for the cost.

            I just got these Monroe LT shocks for my chevy van, and I can tell the difference in stablity and handling on the road. These shockes are terrific also on pot holes and bad pavement as well.

              • Q:

                Monroe has several shocks that are listed to be compatible
                with my Toyota 1986 DLX Extended Cab Pickup 2-Door 2.4L .
                However when I check the compatible Monroe's specs on Advance Auto online they all have different compression, extended and travel lengths. From what I read the compressed length is very important to be sure the frame bottoms-out before the shock does.
                How do I determine which compatible listed Monroe shock is the best OEM replacement for my Toyota truck ?

                  A:

                  Hi Tom, glad to help! Yes, there are few shocks listed in Monroe. For front, you can choose between the 37030 (Extended Cab pickup - Front 4WD) or 37032 (Extended Cab pickup - Front & Rear RWD / Without 1 Ton Chassis. The Monroe 37073 can be used for an Extended Cab pickup - Rear RWD/without 1 Ton Chassis. If you are not sure on further specifications of your requirements, it is better to check with a professional. Most of our stores have ASE certified representatives who can help you in ordering the exact part for your pickup. I would recommend that you check with the nearest store for further assistance.

                  The LT version shocks are designed for mid- to full-size, light-duty work trucks and vans while the Non LT is used for Towing & Hauling, utility vehicles, except Models w/ Height Sensing Rear Brake Proportioning Valve.

                  A:

                  During installation of suspension components, the majority of the time, alignment angles are changed. Alignmesnts are recommended after these repairs to see if anything was changed and if it was, to be fixed.

                  Yes, this should fit on the front of your Cadillac. It is more of a slightley heavier duty shock compared to others so, it may be slightley rough.
