Dont waste your money

Comments about Monroe Max-Air Air Shock Absorber:

I have purchased 2 sets of these. On the first set the passenger side rubbed through on the emergency brake cable. You cant buy just one shock so I purchased another set. They have been continually leaking. I have changed the o-rings, the t valve and they still leak. I have sprayed the whole system with soapy water and still can not find the leak. These shocks were a waste of money.

          Used to increase my load carrying capacity. It really helps when towing my boat. The rear bumper was almost on the ground before, now the ride is level and firm.

            I have a 17' travel trailer that weights about 2800Lbs will these shocks hold this kind of load?

            • A:

              The tongue weight of the trailer is really the question. The tongue weight is probable around 500-600 pounds and these would work just fine.

              Answered on 4/30/2010 by Ray from Illinois
            • A:

              It depends on tongue weight. Tongue weight of trailer is less then actual weight of trailer. Tongue weight is weight placed on trailer hitch to vehicle.
