    Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

    These were a perfect fit replacement on my 2002 F150 Lariat FX4 SuperCrew. I have 240k miles and didn't want to spend a lot of money. The hardest part was removing the original shocks. These were a perfect fit and not too hard to replace.

      Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

      The ride on my 2000 F150 (0.5 Ton) truck had deteriorated due to some heavy transporting of demolition materials, etc. for a home improvement project. It had reached a point where the tires started to chop a bit so looked into various shocks and the related costs. As my truck is 14 years old with a 160,000+ miles, didn't want to spend a great deal of money, so went with the Monroe Gas-Matic shocks for the light truck assembly. The old shocks were a bit difficult to remove due to corrosion, but the new ones went in without a hitch and the difference in the ride was very apparent on the first trip into Town. A good quality product especially considering the very reasonable price.

          Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

          Don't forget to put some grease on the bottom bushing before inserting the bolt back through the lower control arm. Also put some grease on the threads of the shaft to ensure that you can remove them in the future if needed.
          Always replace both front or rear shocks at the same time. Once both shocks (or all 4) have been replaced, I suggest theat you take the vehicle to an alignment shop to have the alignment checked. On cars with struts it is a must to have an alignment done! Hope this helps.

            Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

            Bought these due to body roll, cracked boots, and squeaking from OEM. I was worried about ease of installation and quality due to the cheaper price..but they fell right in place. Topside nut was smaller than OEM but seemed to put good pressure on the bushing cap and tightened without much, if any, rod spin. Would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a budget minded, daily driver rear shock replacement.

                  • Q:

                    There are no installation instructions for these shocks. I'm assuming the metal washers go on either side of the rounded bottom of the shock and the rubber bushings are oriented so the ridges face each other on the top of the shock?
