I bought these to replace the very old shocks on my '97 Explorer. A good fit, easy to install. I kind of like the new upper bolts that come them, as opposed to the stock configuration where the upper bolts are integral. On the rear of a Explorer, the upper shock mounts are a little hard to access, and in a spot where I could not fit an air tool. But the new bolts allowed me to use my air ratchet from below to finish the installation. YMMV

The lower bolt was not included with the shock. The old bolt was twisted in half to get it off and the other one was cut off with a torch. There was a second trip to get a replacement bolt and Advance sold me an english bolt instead of a metric. Second trip to a local hardware store for a $3 bolt which should have been with the shock to start with.

      Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

      Installed this on my 2002 ford sport trac. What a difference on the handling. I had the front end shock done but decided to change the back as well. My truck sound like new again, I thought it was my mounts that are faulty but it's actually my shocks that are messed ended up changing my bearings as well. Maybe from the bad shocks. If you have faulty front shocks chances are the back is also bad. The parts are cheap, I had $20 speed perks to useless 20% off online, can't beat that and paid my mechanic $75 to install. I don't hear noises on bumps, smoother ride all together. I should have done this sooner. Thanks advance auto parts!!!!!!!!

          Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

          The product itself was easy to install. The vehicle it was installed on (2002 Explorer Sport Tract) was difficult to work on because of pollution device which is placed in the way making it difficult to install on the drivers side of the vehicle.

          That said, because of the way these are manufactured and uses nut and bolt fasteners instead of pressed in bolts replacing these will be much easier then the ones I replaced which I think were the originals factory installed.
