Check Vehicle Fit

The Monroe® Reflex® struts with the patented ASD Technology combines specially tuned valving and a Fluon banded piston. The ASD valve has the ability to sense acceleration to improve the handling, safety, and overall ride characteristics of most vehicles. 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® struts make it the superior choice for improved handling, safety, and comfort in all road conditions.

Product Features:
  • All Weather Fluid: Contains special modifiers to reduce friction and ensure smooth rod reaction.
  • ASD Technology: Innovative valving provides greater control for handling, while improving ride comfort.
  • Nitrogen Gas Charged: For improved ride and handling, helps maintain tire to road contact by reducing aeration - on most applications
  • Rod Displaced Valving: Better valving range on both the compression and extension cycles of the unit for a smooth comfortable ride.
  • Special Dust Boot/Jounce Bumper: Protective dust boot reduces dirt and any moisture build-up. Jounce bumper helps prevent severe suspension movement. Dust boot & jounce bumper sold separately.
  • Unique Rod Guide and Single Lip Seal: Bronze reinforced rod guide bearing and special seal provides longer service life and consistent performance.
  • Hardened and Chrome Plated Piston Rod: 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.

      Comments about Monroe Reflex Strut:

      Installed on a 2005 Equinox LT, works as Advertised.
      I do not recommend the Monroe "Quick-Strut" Complete Strut Assembly. Had a bad experience with them. The springs were too stiff & bearing plates failed on both. I am sending those back for a refund. Fortunately I kept the original pair assembly and bought these Monroe ReFlex Stuts. Transfered the OEM springs, bushings, and bearing plates. These had 90K on them. Had to pay for another alignment. Great Results! Smooth, no noise, no creaks, no pops, Just Silence! tb

              Had taken over a vehicle that we reposessed and vehicle was in terrible shape. Car had driven very hard down dirt roads and over railroad tracks. The tires were wearing down very fast and after changing struts and getting alignment car rides great. Thank You

              • Q:

                Is this strut able to be put on without the mounting kit. Wouldn't this be a direct replacment of the old one with the OEM holes on the vehicle lining up w/o a mounting bracket???
