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)

  • Q:

    Can I take this on an airplane, according to TSA regulations? More important, do they contain pressure gas, like nitrogen, which could explode in high altitude? I am also interested to buy the front shock absorbers from Monroe as well for the RAV4 2009, and take them with me on my flight back to Africa. I pick them at a store of advance auto here in the US

      I'm happy to help, Manfred! In general, TSA permits auto and vehicle parts in carry-on or checked baggage after they’ve been properly screened and if there is no fuel or traces of fuel present. Shock absorbers are allowed in checked baggage as long as they do not have sealed, compressed gas cylinders or hazardous materials. If the shock absorbers are sealed with compressed gas, they will not be allowed in checked baggage. Even if a shock absorber is not sealed with compressed gas, if it contains a residue or vapors of oil or gasoline, it is considered a hazardous material and will be removed from checked baggage by the airline.

      These Monroe Sensa-Trac Light Truck Shock Absorbers (Part No. 37289) for your 2009 Toyota RAV4 are nitrogen gas charged. They also contain special modifiers. You will need Monroe Sensa-Trac Strut (Part No. 72275) for the front right and Sensa-Trac Strut (Part No. 72276) for the front left.

      If you have any questions regarding hazardous materials regulations that could pertain to an item you want to pack for air travel, please call PHMSA at (800) 467-4922 or visit their website at http://hazmat.dot.gov.
