Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

Check out my Youtube video on how to install these shocks in 5 minutes or less. A floor jack, a scissor jack, an impact wrench, 18mm socket and you're set. The install will be done faster than the prep and clean up.

      Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

      I bought these for my 92 Chevy 1/2 ton, i haul a 16 ft horse trailer with two horses, before the truck would sag drastically, i purchased these and there is no sag at all it did lift the rear about a inch, the ride with and without a load is great, my only problem was the install it does require a floor jack to compress the shock to get it in, other then that it was straight forward and can be accomplished with hand tools.

        I bought these for my 1996 Chevy Cheyenne.
        After installation, the ride was back to the way it should be...instead of boucing around, I had a steady ride. great for trailing.

        Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

        Installed these on my '96 GMC Sierra. I purchased these to help when towing my 25ft pull trailer and also because of all the positive reviews. I'll test towing on my next trip. My daily ride is firm but smooth, shocks raised rear about 2". I bounced on the rear bumper to test the feel and I know it can handle heavy loads if hauling. Because they are spring coils they were a bit tricky to compress to install. I lifted one side of the truck from the frame and while I was laying on the ground I used a flat pry bar to wedge the bottom of the shock into the mount and then kicked it in place while inserting the bolt. The second shock was easy to install due to the the extra lift of the first shock. If you carry heavy loads, tow a trailer or have saggy leaf spings I recommend these shocks.

        If you want to take the squat out of your pickup or suv this is so much more easier and cheaper than add a leafs. I haul a 16 foot skidloader trailer, snowplow, boat, fourwheelers and with these shocks took the severe Squat and swaying out of my trucks however with load range e tires be prepared for a stiffer ride. would definatly recomend these

        Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

        Nice shock. It raised my truck about another 2 inches. Took all day to change them. The helper spring on the shock makes it difficult to compress when installing. Two things come in very handy to make installing a little easier. A jack to line up the shock and a pry bar to snap in place on the shock mount. Better spray the shock mount bolts with PB Blast about 30 minutes before you start. These shock look very cool but it's a job.

        • Q:

          I have a 98 chevy k1500 350 v8, I installed these shocks on my truck and love them, I like how the lift the rear of the truck, I was wandering if these could be installed on the front of the truck? It seems like there wouldn't be enough room around the shock with the springs on them, my stock shocks I have on now are very close other objects.
