Check Vehicle Fit

Monroe® Reflex® monotube shocks are specifically engineered to provide better handling, control and performance for light trucks and SUV's. These shocks feature a high-pressure gas charge that separates the unit internal oil and nitrogen to provide additional spring rate, helping to maximize damping efficiency and control. To further enhance ride control characteristics, Monroe® Reflex® monotube shocks include a hydraulic lockout to cushion the impact as the vehicle suspension is fully extended.

Product Features:
  • Hydraulic Lockout: Patented unique hydraulic lock-out isolates impact at the limits of suspension travel
  • All Weather Fluid: Contains special modifiers to reduce friction and ensure smooth rod reaction.
  • High Pressure Nitrogen Gas Charged: High-pressure charge (240-260 PSI) provides a quicker response for excellent vehicle control
  • Shock Housing: High strength to resist damage and provide longer service life.
  • Nitrocarburized Rod: For long service life
  • Fluon Banded Piston: The fluon band provides consistent sealing between the piston and pressure tube which delivers better control and increased durability.
  • Free Floating Dividing Piston: Separates shock fluid from high-pressure gas charge.

      Comments about Monroe Reflex Monotube Shock Absorber:

      I ordered the wrong ones online the first time, then took them to my local Advance store so they could help me get the "right" ones. I wanted heavy duty shocks to hold up longer and serve my purpose better. They were so helpful to send the wrong ones back and get what I wanted. I installed them myself and anyone can do it with simple mechanic's skills. They ride good and hope they will last me the life of my truck. I am very satisfied with this product and MY Advance for their service to me.

      Comments about Monroe Reflex Monotube Shock Absorber:

      so far these replacement front shocks have been okay. i did notice one had a broken plastic piece out of the shipping box and the other looked fine but it had alot of oil on the shock itself and the box it came in showed it had soiled cardboard, so the shock had been leaking for some time. i installed both because they both seemed to operate fine manually. i placed black tape over the one that had the plastic broke. the other seems like it is starting to make a little knocking noise over rough terrain, if it gets louder i plan to take them back for exchange.

                  Big improvement over the worn out originals. Like night and day difference. Worth the money. I had to use the jack to move the front suspension up & down to squeeze the shock in- kind of a tight fit but my first time & I got it.
