Good for the money

About Me Auto Enthusiast, Casual Driver

Pros

  • Easy Install
  • Inexpensive

Cons

  • Not A Performance Product

Best Uses

  • Daily Driver

Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Passenger Car Shock Absorber:

Both rear shocks installed in about half an hour. They are NOT performance shocks, but do well enough for daily driving. I have these same shocks installed on my worn out old pickup and they have been good enough for nearly a year. The ride quality is sufficient when operating the vehicle at or below the speed limit. I wouldn't use these for high performace vehicles, but for daily driver's they are pretty good. I would buy again.

          Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Passenger Car Shock Absorber:

          The first set had a flaw on one shock and it would not fit in bottom bracket. I returned it but the next one I received did not extract out no matter what I tried. The third time I went to the store I was given a good replacement.
