Works as expected.

I put these on a 96 Dakota. Monroe is a good brand. The Sensatrac is better, but for everday commuter driving these work great.

I bought these for the front of my 2000 Quad Cab Dakota. I was a little nervous about them as soon as I removed the front shocks. The Mopar shocks were noticably larger in diameter. I installed the shocks anyway and at first they seemed fine. Now it is less than a year later and not even 10,000 miles and they are shot. I just don't see how the factory shocks can last 11 years and the aftermarkets can't even survive one. Very pitiful product. The warranty is limited to only 90 days, so now I have to eat the cost of another set. Do yourselves a favor and buy another brand!

                I have a 2004 Dakota 4X4 that a bought a couple of years ago with 90K+ on the odo. I've been picking away at some of the higher maintenance items and shocks were on the list. I purchased these Monroe's a few days ago and replaced what appeared to be the factory units with over 118K on them. Needless to say the old shocks were way tired. After a painless install of these Monroe's I noticed a considerable difference in the ride and handling. This was no surprise given the length of time others were in there and they made for a really nice ride. The price seems very reasonable for the result achieved!

                        Hi Brian, I'm glad to assist you. This Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber (Part No. 59329) comes with limited lifetime warranty. It is recommended to replace shock absorber at 50,000 miles. Testing has shown that original equipment gas-charged shocks and struts degrade measurably by 50,000 miles.
