Let me start by saying that it's true you get what you pay for. So with that said, In a pinch these shocks will work but don't expect a pleasing ride quality. If 90% of your driving is highway driving you may be fine with this shock. you will feel every small imperfection in the road which makes town driving or country road driving fairly poor. Forget about it if you hit a small pothole or uneven surface, your whole body will will take abuse. Don't even think about buying this shock for off road use. I know these shocks are not intended for off road, but on occasion I will need to drive up a dirt driveway to get to my destination, and If I hit a rut I feel like I might need a pillow to protect my head from smacking into the drivers side window. My old worn out shocks did a better job & I will be replacing these shocks with something of better quality.

    My 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Edition stock shocks were at the end of their life, so I replaced them with these excellent Monroe replacements. It took me 20 Min to replace them, Not only where they a great price they preformed Great on my jeep. Smooth ride I tell you. My jeep just got a up-grade.

        Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

        The makers of Dramamine will be happy if you buy these because you will need a lifetime supply. These are worse than the oem shocks with 300k on them. I replaced them because I had a thunk noise from one. Now I have a thunk noise from both and it feels like you're on a boat in choppy water. You get seasick in my Jeep. I would have been better off at the junkyard. I will return these and buy shocks somewhere else.

        these shocks ride rougher than the old ones we took off and they were the original one that came on my car. We are going to take them back and up-grade.

        Replaced the worn out shocks on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with these gas-matics and found out the ride wasn't improved at all. The ride is as soft as the worn out shocks and I just drive around town and country roads to and from town-NO OFFROAD TRAVEL at all! Should have bought a better shock.

                    A:

                    Hi Arthur, glad to assist you! This part comes with a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

                  How do you find out what type of suspension you have

                    A:

                    Hi, great question! The car has a different type of suspension on the front and back. That is determined by whether a rigid axle binds the wheels or if the wheels are permitted to move independently. If you can tell me your vehicle's year, make, and model, I can suggest parts available for that vehicle.
