    Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

    These shocks were fairly easy to install. My car was the aspect that gave the most trouble when installing them. I did think they were going to be bigger than what they were. However they were the correct fit and made the car ride alot better.

    • Q:

      I have a 1972 LTD base model, 6.6 engine, c6 transmission, 4 door does have a/c. My question is will these shocks make the car stiffer and not be so bouncy and soft? The car weighs almost 7000 pounds, so im trying to find a shock to make it stiffer, i love the car just hate the softness of the ride, when i read these hold ride height when up to 1200 additional pounds are added i thought these may be what im looking for. Thanks for your time!

    • Q:

      I have a 91 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series that has an issue. When I hit a bump in the road, my front end wheel weld slams on the tires. I replaced the shocks and springs with the stock products but brand new but it continues to do it. Can I use this to replace my shocks now, and will they work better. Also is there a heavier duty set of springs I can use to help keep my front end from slamming on my tires?
