Comments about Monroe Max-Air Air Shock Absorber:

These Monroe air shocks were purchased to help level heavy loads from time to time. The leaf springs on my truck are getting weak due to age and use. Air shocks were a easy fix for the problem and alot less exspensive than new springs. A word of caution, DO NOT use these shocks to haul more than your vehicle is rated for.

      Comments about Monroe Max-Air Air Shock Absorber:

      I got these to take the place of my normal shocks that I had on my truck as they just weren't doing it hauling my camper. These helped with the handling and also gave a good ride as well as keeping the back of the truck up some more. Very easy to install on my 95 Chevy half ton two wheel drive.

            • Q:

              When I click under specs on your ma764 Max air shocks it states these have a compressed shock length of 12.25" and extended length of 20.125" and 8" of travel but looking over at Monroe site for the max-air specs on these they state that they are 15.875" compressed 27.125" extended and 11.250" of travel which is a perty big difference in sizes can you please confirm the right length of the shock so I can place order I'm guessing it was a miss print on your sight but would like to make sure I receive the right size shock I need.
