      • Q:

        will these struts make the rear sit up higher ?

          A:

          Yes, the Monroe Gas-Matic Strut with Part No. 81616 is a shock absorber designed for mid to full size, hard working pick-up trucks and vans. These units provide firm control without a harsh ride and a comparatively higher(not much) rear sit up.

          For the best help with your “Do it yourself” project, I recommend visiting your local Advance Auto Parts store and picking up the Haynes repair manual for your vehicle. These manuals you give step by step instructions on numerous services for the specific vehicle. While in the store, feel free to speak with a Advance Auto Parts representative there in the store for helpful hints and information as well.

          Strut mounts, bellows and or bump stop, install kit, are some of the parts that can replaced at the time, these parts should be inspected and replaced if need be. Of those the strut mount is the most critical.
