    Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Truck Shock Absorber:

    transaction with Advance Auto online went well. Picked up shocks at local store. saved 15%. Upon installation realized one shock did not fit. Part # on box was correct but wrong shock in box. Found out can't exchange at store. Have to return and repurchase new shock. No 15% discount. When all said and done, shocks seem on light side, ride is noticeably soft when going over big bumps. Would've prefered a stiffer shock but not sure how to know that in advance.

      Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Truck Shock Absorber:

      Was happy with these at first. But after a few weeks of using them one of them started making a squeaky noise. Every thing bump there is a squeak.

      its annoying and for a few more bucks i would upgrade so i dont have to hear the noise.

                A:

                Hi Randy, good question! This shock absorber carries a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

            • Q:

              Is there any trick to installing shocks ? They seem easy enough but I think I heard you have to install the bottom first then cut the cable so it fully extends to the top using a floor jack to lower the axle if needed and then fasten the top. True?

                I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                To know the exact fit application, if you could please include the sub model and engine size of the vehicle and we would be better able to assist you.
