    Easy to bolt on once the springs were compressed.

    As it was extended full length from the box , it was longer than install length.

          Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

          I needed a little extra capacity in my 1/2 ton pickup. These did the trick. I can now carry about 1000lbs (up from 700lbs) in the bed without bottoming out. Extra springs or airbags are nice, but these shocks were only [$] for the pair and a lot easier to install.
