      Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Truck Shock Absorber:

      I put these on, and there was minimal improvement over the old shocks. They also started to squeak at low speeds within just a few hundred miles. I'm currently looking for better options, and seeing what I can do to return these shocks to Advance.
      The only good thing is that they physically fit just fine on my old-style 1999 Chevy Z71.

        Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Truck Shock Absorber:

        After installation, my 95 GMC Z71 takes speed bumps, rail roads and dips much smoother. I would recommend these shocks to anyone looking for inexpensive, stock replacement for normal use.

            Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Truck Shock Absorber:

            My Tahoe has 150,000 miles and the stock shocks were rusted and in poor shape, i put these Monroe shocks in and the ride got worse, the old shocks rode much better. I hit a bump on the highway and the front end shakes and i can watch the steering wheel shimmy, and the front end floats for a good 3 seconds after i pass the bump. Save your cash and get a better quality shock!

                    A:

                    Right about the "Monroe Gas-Matic" in the product title, it tells you that these are for the front.
