      Comments about Monroe Max-Air Air Shock Absorber:

      I bought wider tires than I should have for my 1970 Mach I, and they rubbed the top of the wheel opening going over bumps. I purchased the air shocks to lift the rear higher, now no more scraping. There is no schrader valve per shock, you must use the plastic tubing and o rings to fill the shocks with air.

            Put them on the rear of my 1970 Mustang conv. Fit right, easy to install. Had no air leaks the first time. Just needed a little lift and shackels weren't what I was after. Recommend them.
