    Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Passenger Car Shock Absorber:

    They're shock absorbers. They work. The're yellow.

    Remember shocks absorb the expansion and contraction of the springs in your car. If the springs are shot. New shocks will not fix that.

    shock absorber

    Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Passenger Car Shock Absorber:

    order the correct part for your application. these are the cheapest bottom of the barrel part you can buy. they are better than old leaky shocks, mostly because they are not leaking. these are not high performing parts.

    Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Passenger Car Shock Absorber:

    I replaced both rear struts on my 1994 Chevy Cavalier with these struts. It was a 4 hour job for someone new to it. My old struts had completely failed (they would completely compress and not rebound at all). These new struts compress and slowly rebound. I have noticed better breaking, a better ride on bumpy roads, and better handling. The replacement of these struts is something I highly recommend given that it isn't that expensive and makes such a difference on the car.

        A:

        Sorry, this Monroe Gas-Matic Passenger Car Shock Absorber is not an ideal part for your vehicle. Quick-Strut Complete Strut Assembly or Econo-Matic Complete Strut Assembly are the ideal parts for your vehicle. Please check the Part No. 171281 or Part No. 181281.
