Great Shocks

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

Great shocks. Put them on a 1964 Ford Falcon. Obviously old springs but these shocks put the car sitting right. Have only had them on for a few days but the ride is totally different than before.

Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

Both shocks,bushings, and hardware are included! These are better than OEM/Replacement rear shocks! They are heavy duty with the addition of the coil springs!
Installing these at home can be a little difficult. You can't simply "compress" by hand then install, like typical replacement shocks. I had to, very carefully, use a floor jack to compress these shocks (while the upper section of the shock was "loosely"(hand tightened) installed.).
The ride height had returned to factory specs!
They deliver a nice, comfortable, improved handling ride!

      Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

      After installation the ride height is perfect and the ride is awesome. This is my 4th restoration with these Mustangs and this is a must. Use a lift and loosen the lower shock mounting plate for easy installation.. support the body not the rearend. Great product!

            Hi Thomas, happy to help you! A new pair of Monroe Sensa-Trac load adjusting shock absorbers can assist in maintaining ride height when up to 1,200 lbs of additional weight is loaded. These units are ideal for light trucks that carry varying loads or tow trailers. However, the capacity is limited by vehicle suspension, tires and transmission.
