Check Vehicle Fit

The Monroe Sensa-Trac truck shock absorber with PSD (position sensitive damping) and the Safe Tech system combines our exclusive precision tapered grooves in the pressure tube with application engineered valving and Fluon banded piston to improve the ride, handling, and safety characteristics of the vehicle. These features allow the Monroe Sensa-Trac truck shock absorber to adjust more rapidly to changing road and weight conditions than any other available shock absorber.

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.
  • 1-3/8" Bore: Lower operating pressure than standard 1" bore units
  • Unique Groove Tube - PSD: Precision tapered grooves in the pressure tube perform like an additional stage of valving for optimum ride tuning.
  • Nitrogen Gas Charged: For improved ride and handling, helps maintain tire to road contact by reducing aeration.
  • 5/8" 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.

    those who have slightly older small pick-up trucks (rangers, s-10's, tacomas etc...) know what i mean when i say a good front shock is very important for how the truck acts and functions. When the shock goes bad the stopping becomes more harsh the bumpy roads become more harsh the over all handling becomes more harsh. I tried to correct it first with a high end rancho shock which only made the bumps in the road unbearable. It was way to stiff. This is the next step up from the cheapy budget shock and it has been the cure all so far! The biggest notice so far is the handling. My ranger is by no means a corner carving corvette but with these shocks the handling is greatly improved. When i brake hard the nose of the truck no longer nose dives! And while the bumps are greatly improved, you can still feel them. But then again with a ranger or similar its just the way the truck is!! This is why I call them the best bang for the buck shock. The expensive shocks are just overkill. To stiff to be comfortable.

    The Upper Mount Threaded Post and Bushing/Washer Design requires you to utilized all of the thread to get the lower bushing to become snug against the trucks upper mount housing. It would appear that if you get any unusual wear of the upper bushings it could result in a loose shock condition as there is no further capability to tighten that fit.

        Great shocks. Able to install with the supervision of my 11 month old daughter and the help of my 3 yr old son. took about 2 hours (change diapers, dinner, etc). There was a bid difference from the original shocks.

              Comments about Monroe Sensa-Trac Light Truck Shock Absorber:

              I bought these to replace severely worn out OEM shocks (crumbled in my hands). These shocks look nice with a gloss black finish. They feel nice and solid. These were for my front end and came with the needed nuts and bolts. They installed quickly and easily, with a perfect fit. I have a torsion bar front end and these definitely help absorb the bumps much more "fluidly". They have helped the overall ride of my truck immensely including a better feel when braking. I think that they are an a very good value for the money and would not hesitate to buy again.

                        These Monroe shocks are great. We put on a 01road Ford Explorer. In the rear we have the self leveling shocks and those can take a heavy load without sacrificing ride quality. The front monroes def make a diff. Never and I mean NEVER get the yellow gas matic cheap Monroe shocks. These are priced well. Quality is great. Cant ask for more on shocks for this price. The handle great on the interstate and dampen well on rough roads.

                          Bought these to replace the originals on my 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac, they had 75,00 miles on them. Had no trouble with the replacement. I did both front and rear. I was well pleased with the quality (American Made.) Ended up able to do all four under 2 hours total. They were a good fit, all necessary parts were included (replacement bolts, nuts, spacers and even the rubber bushings) After the installation be sure to test drive it and go back and check for any movement of the nuts. I am enjoying a more controlled and solid ride now, and much better handling. Really fast and free shipping saved a trip out to the store.
