These shocks were JUNK!!! I put them on my mini van and from day 1 they were poor to say the least. I ended taking them back and replacing them with different shocks. When I showed the clerk by pushing in the shock and you could hear the fluid in them with no resistance she exchanged them for different shocks. They are listed as standard duty, there junk. She gave me full credit and I ended paying more for better shocks. DON"T BUY THEM.

          First time for an online order. Worked well, although I didn't get a confirmation that it was available for pickup. The local store is always great to work with and have knowledgeable staff. Shocks were low cost and seemed good quality.

            Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

            Bought these for my 2007 Town and Country. They were easy to install. The old shocks were completely shot, so these were better, but not by much. The rear of the vehicle bounces more than it should. Don't waste your money, get the more expensive ones.

                I prefer sensortrac shocks but decided i wont be keeping this vehicle long enough or driving it enough to bother with top quality parts.
                these work great tho van no longer bounces around and stops and turn much better.
                Only con is i cant bounce the kids up and down coming to stop lights as if i have hydraulics.
                And to all of you bouncing down the highway
                BUY THESE!!!!!!!!!!

                    • Q:

                      When I click on "Warranty" why do I get a very generic page about Advance's warranty policies rather than very specific info about the warranty on THIS part?

                      In other words, if I were to buy a Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber, what is the warranty?

                        Hi Anonymous, glad to assist you! This part comes with a limited lifetime replacement warranty. This warranty is valid for 90 days from the date of purchase or any longer warranty period that may be printed on your original sales receipt. In addition, you must be the original purchaser of the part and still own the vehicle on which it was installed. This warranty cannot be transferred to anyone at any time. Replacement parts are warranted for 90 days from the date of exchange or the remainder of the warranty period, whichever is longer. Warranty periods may vary from part to part.

                        A:

                        Nivomat is the name for a vehicle suspension technology. Compared to the common use of springs, struts, and shock absorbers in a car suspension, Nivomat replaces all of these components with a single unit per wheel which provides damping, ride control, and a self-levelling function.

                        It will be the direct fit to your vehicle. It is recommended to replace the strut mounting kit with the shock absorber.
