  • Full Displaced Valving: Better valving range on both the compression and extension cycles of the unit for a smooth comfortable ride.
  • Micro-Cellular Gas Design: Allows unit to be mounted horizontally.
  • Sintered Iron Piston: Stronger than traditional metals, enhances durability for longer service life.
  • Special Seal: 'Self-lubricating' fluid seal designed to retain gas without excessive wear or friction.

      Leaking after 4 months

        Comments about Monroe Magnum Steering Damper:

        Installed it on my 4x4 Dodge Ram 1500 with only 3 inches of lift and 33 inch tall tires, not excessive stress for a stock type stabilizer. Not only did it start leaking after only 4 months, but the outside has started to corrode.

        I do know that Advance will stand behind their warranty. Sure hope the second one holds up better.

            Comments about Monroe Magnum Steering Damper:

            Shock was not assembled correctly. The bushings were swapped end for end and they are of different sizes. The shock didn't survive the attempt to remedy the problem.
            Hate to say I would not recommend more you really need to inspect the shock before you leave the store.

                A:

                The steering stabilizer may be the possible cause of the problem. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

            • Q:

              would a bad steering stabilizer cause the steering wheel to shimming back and fourth when turning slow around a corner

                A:

                This could possibly be the problem. However, with out the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer.
