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.

    Comments about Monroe Reflex Light Truck Shock Absorber:

    The shocks in the 2004 Dodge Durango that I just purchased used still had the old original shocks in it. I wasn't sure which shocks to get considering the weight of these big old Durangos so I did some research and found these Monroe shocks at a decent price and decided to give them a try. Installation was a breeze and these shocks have made a night and day difference in the way my Durango handles, for the first couple days I found myself purposely driving over bumps because I couldn't believe the difference in ride quality. My neighbor also has a Durango although it's a little newer than mine and he opted to get the cheapest Monroe shocks he could find and I must say these are so much better in the Durango. I'd get them for a light truck or suv in a heartbeat, and Advance Auto even price matches so you're good to go!

        Comments about Monroe Reflex Light Truck Shock Absorber:

        A must-have upgrade to replace 100k well-used OEM shocks. Reflex are probably twice the diameter of the skinny OEM shocks. The silver paint looks sharp. I wish they were stiffer - nobody would say they are harsh or rough. Ride is more controlled and still very plush. Truck still bounds over bumps but MUCH better than before. I assume Bilstein shocks would be better, but they are 50% more costly and on backorder for many months. Changing all 4 shocks on a 2nd gen Durango takes maybe an hour tops, with air tools. Dropping the spare tire makes for easy access on the rear. BEST PART - there is a lifetime warranty where you can get new shocks every couple of years, no questions asked.

            These shocks are considerably heavier duty than original equipment - ride and performance were much improved after installation. Very satisfied with purchase.

              I have used Monroe in the past with no complaints. Not enough miles on these yet to judge overall performance. Only installed on the rear of my 2008 Aspen. We will see how they do.
