    Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

    Gained ~2" ride hight on 400#, 1.5" on 800-1000#.
    Ride is significantly stiffened, but it is a pleasant, soft stiff... Not harsh.
    In the past I have used clamp-on springs (which slips continuously) and another brand of coil over shocks, but all left much to be desired.

        • Q:

          Is the price shown per shock or for a pair? I guess what I'm asking is if I add (1) to my cart will I receive one shock or two?
