      Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Passenger Car Shock Absorber:

      I purchased a set of these rear shock absorbers to replace a worn out pair to my mothers 1998 Mercury Grand Marquis. They came with all new installation hardware to include all the nuts and bolts along with new rubber bushings. They bolted right up and were an exact fit. There is a noticeable difference in the ride quality. These were a good economical choice.

        Easy to install and the comfort of a lifetime warranty. SAVE YOUR RECEIPT BECAUSE THE COMPUTER SYSTEM KEEPS YOUR NAME AND PURCHASE FOR ONLY 2 OR 3 YEARS

        Great Product, Wrong Part Provided

        By 

        from St. Petersburg, FL

        About Me Auto Enthusiast, Truck Enthusiast

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Durable
        • High-Performance

        Cons

        • Incompatible

        Best Uses

        • Large Cars
        • Trucks

        Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Passenger Car Shock Absorber:

        Although Monroe manufactures a superior shock absorber for general purposes, sometimes compatibility lists are incomplete or incorrect. My 1989 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series was manufactured with an automatic leveling feature, as were ALL 1989 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series units. This requires air adjustable shock absorbers to regulate the height of the rear of the vehicle. Despite the fact that the shocks provided would have technically "fit," ALL "Signature Series" Town Cars in 1989 require air shocks. Therefore, the part number listed in the Advance database was NOT the correct shock absorber for the specific model ("trim package") of this car. It is VERY IMPORTANT to be aware of the equipment your car has prior to ordering. DO NOT assume that the listed part is the appropriate part.
