I've always used Monroe shocks on all my cars and trucks and was pleased to find out that Advance Auto Parts carried them in stock I might add for my 1959 GMC truck, the truck still had the original shocks and these Monroe's where a perfect match and were so easy to install once I had the old ones off I was done in no time and what difference in the ride and handling I would highly recommend this product for its quality, value and ease of install

    Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Truck Shock Absorber:

    These are good shocks for the money, however they claim to fit the rear of a 1982 Jeep Scrambler....they do not. Luckily the front shocks they show are too long for the front so I was able to switch them by replacing the bushings. Just double check your old shock lengths before you buy these...

                        A:

                        Extended length is when the shock is fully extended out. Retracted length is when the shock is compressed down.
