Check Vehicle Fit

Monroe® OESpectrum® shock absorbers are engineered specifically for foreign nameplate vehicles and feature the latest global original equipment valving technologies. Developed through years of research and on-vehicle testing, Monroe® OESpectrum® units provide an unprecedented level of handling precision and control while filtering out the ride harshness commonly encountered on many foreign nameplate applications. This unique blend of control and comfort is made possible through Tenneco's 'Twin Technology™ Active Control System', an exclusive internal damping control technology first developed for leading global vehicle manufacturers. Tenneco's Twin Technology™ consists of its latest Impact Control Valve (ICV), which delivers exceptional control under virtually all driving conditions, and a patented Low Speed Tunability (LST) piston design that isolates impact-related noise, vibration and harshness.

Product Features:
  • All Weather Fluid: Contains special modifiers to reduce friction and ensure smooth rod reaction.
  • Full Displaced Valving: Tuned specifically for each application, this valving automatically adjusts to road extremes to provide consistency and ride
  • Fluon Banded Piston: The fluon band provides consistent sealing between the piston and pressure tube which delivers better control and increased durability.
  • Twin Technology™: Impact Control Valve (ICV), delivers exceptional control under virtually all driving conditions, and patented Low Speed Tunability (LST) piston design that isolates impact-related noise, vibration and harshness.
  • Nitrogen Gas Charged: For improved ride and handling, helps maintain tire to road contact by reducing aeration - on most applications
  • Special Seal: 'Self-lubricating' fluid seal designed to retain gas without excessive wear or friction.
  • 1-3/8 inch (34.9 mm) bore (On most applications)
  • 5/8-inch (15.9 mm) diameter piston rod (On most applications)

          Mounting bolts on Nissan are different sizes: large on top (frame) small on bottom (axle). These MONROE shocks were made (in China) upside down and I had to press out the rubber bushings and reinstall correctly. 30 minute job took 3 hours.

            • Q:

              What is the max load rating on this shock? Since it is self adjustable for various loads I am wonder how much the rear of my Pathfinder will lower when I have extra weight in the back.

                A:

                These are made to manufacturer's specs. They are not 'load-leveling' shocks and will not assist the springs above the max load rating in the owner's manual. Rear axle rating can be found in the 'towing capacity' section. NEVER exceed towing capacity, especially in a high ground clearance vehicle. Too much weight in the rear of any vehicle will cause it to be VERY unstable and dangerous to drive. Happy Motoring!
