          These were listed as a direct replacement component for the family mini-van. Despite the boring vehicle choice, we did see a noticable difference in the overall ride as soon as they were installed. The cost was reasonable, they were easy to install, and they work great. Win-Win-Win

                    I replaced the rear shocks on my 2004 Grand Caravan with this product. They were easy to install and cured the van's rear bouncing over expansion joints and general "loose" feel in the back. They did improve the rear suspension so well that I now notice more things in the front suspension.

                              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.

                                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.
