Check Vehicle Fit

The Monroe Reflex® truck shock absorber with the patented ASD Technology combines specially tuned valving with a Fluon banded piston. The ASD valve has the ability to sense acceleration to improve the handling, safety, and overall ride characteristics of sport-utility vehicles, mini-vans and light trucks. The ASD base valve will sense a bump in the road and automatically adjust the shock to absorb the impact, leaving the shock with greater control when it is needed. The features of the Monroe® Reflex® truck shock absorber make it the superior shock for improved handling, safety, and comfort in all road conditions.

Product Features:
  • ASD Technology: Innovative valving provides greater control for handling, while improving ride comfort.
  • All Weather Fluid: Contains special modifiers to reduce friction and ensure smooth rod reaction.
  • Fluon Banded Piston: The fluon band provides consistent sealing between the piston and pressure tube which delivers better control and increased durability.
  • Full Displaced Valving: Tuned specifically for each application, this valving automatically adjusts to road extremes to provide consistency and ride
  • Nitrogen Gas Charged: For improved ride and handling, helps maintain tire to road contact by reducing aeration - on most applications
  • 2-1/4 inch or 2 inch Diameter Reserve Tube: Allows more fluid carrying capacity for a cooler running unit.
  • 1-3/8 inch Bore: Lower operating pressure than standard 1 inch bore units
  • 5/8 inch Piston Rod: Heavy-duty nitrocarburized rod for long service life. On non-dust shield units only
  • Special Seal: 'Self-lubricating' fluid seal designed to retain gas without excessive wear or friction.

Larger barrel then the stock shocks, and have a metal shield to protect the rod. Improved ride over stock shocks.

Better than OEM

By

Comments about Monroe Reflex Light Truck Shock Absorber:

Best shock for the price. Overall best replacement in value and performance. Drastically better ride and handling on my 2500HD, this truck weights 6650#'s and had a tendency to drift in turns now however, it stays were it needs to. Would recommend to anyone that has a light truck that's used to haul and tow medium size loads.

        Good shock, no problems to install. Looks to be a better shock than what I had on the truck (2500/HD). The guys in the store were great as always, especially Tommy.

        My only beef is that I could not get the same price in store as online. I went home, made the purchase, and went back the next day. Shame! Employee reduction plan?

          Installed easily did not even need to jack up the truck to install the front pair. Seems to ride better than the OEM with a camper loaded on the back.

                The OEM shocks on my LMM duramax were shot, and the back end would shudder over bumps. These shocks had better reviews then Bilstein 5100's for the type of roads and driving that I do and best of all... they cost less! There was a noticable improvement in ride quality and I couldnt be happier with the purchase.

                        A:

                        With reference to your inquiry on the Monroe Reflex Light Truck Shock Absorber - Part No. 911181, the top mount that holds the front shock to the car is a bit different than the mount on the bottom. This part of the shock is held on by a nut that tightens over the top of the shock and a washer, using a socket wrench to tighten the nut. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
