    These were for my truck....know that monroe is a good brand, but wasn't too sure if they would be heavy duty enough. well, they are ok.....not that there is anything wrong w/ the shocks themselves, but i really should have bought a heavier model. I can definitely tell a difference in my handling w/ these, so if i wouldn't have been so cheap i could have gotten a better one and been that much more happy.

    But anyway, changing them was super easy.....i had prepped the night before by spraying on WD-40 on all the nuts so they would break loose easier, which they did. it took me 1-1/2 from time i started to finish.....of course, i had to get jack stands out, tools and put them away in that time. plus, i cleaned and painted underneath and around rotors too. so, just the change out was probably 15min.

    these would be good shocks for cars or light trucks.

    I have always been loyal to monroe and put their shocks on about 6 different vehicles i have owned. But that will end here. The shocks work as expected but when i opened the sealed boxes the hardware packs were missing different parts in each one. Also the fit doesnt use the same hardware as specified. Oh well i guess ill be buying something else. Buy american made products and pay a little more.

          direct OEM replacement I'll advice any weekend garage mechanic to invest on a strap wrench, other wise the top part of the shock will keep spinning, product is a perfect fit

                  The bottom holes do not line up with the permanent screws on the truck. If the holes were oval for some wiggle room they may have fit.

                      Ordered these shocks on line and believed that I had ordered the correct fit. WRONG....my mistake but the store manager Mike, worked with me and I received the correct shock. All installed with no problem. I have trusted Monroe and Advance Auto for years and I do mean YEARS of continued service and satisfaction. Glad to see a store location in the Cool Springs area. Thanks for the expansion of stores.

                                After installing the shocks my ride is rougher than it was before. Also, the info on the website said these were an exact fit for my vehicle----Wrong,---the bottom holes did not match up. Took them back to the local store where they were picked up, exchanged them for some more expensive shocks which, guess what?--they didn't fit either, same problem--bottom holes didn't match. The original shocks had slotted holes so without further ado I proceeded to take a hacksaw and slot the last pair. I'm just hoping they hold up like this. Thanks for listening. abc

                                  will these fit a 1996 Ford Explorer 5.0L engine 2wd? If not, do you offer a value line of shock for the front of this vehicle. I know you have some for $24.99 for the back.
