          Comments about Monroe Shock Absorber Air Hose Kit:

          Installed these on my 2000 Pontiac Bonneville SE. It has been 3 weeks and these work well, no air leaks. I also purchased and installed the Air Hose Kit AK29, if you have old hoses I would recommend it. My level ride compressor is toast, but with the hose kit you can adjust the ride easily with regular air pump/compressor. The installation instructions suggested 80 psi, but that raised the back end too high so I let some out until it looked right.

              Comments about Monroe Shock Absorber Air Hose Kit:

              Before ordering this kit be aware it only allows you a way to fill you air shocks/struts via a compressor. It has a line that goes to each strut and connects with a tee. At the tee is a valve stem to hook a compressor with a tire fitting and air up your struts. This does not replace the line from the compressor to the struts for electronic leveling.

              The previous reviewer mentioned the listing said this kit was required to install air shocks, but thats only true if a.) You did not previously have air shocks/struts installed, or b.) You are eliminated you electronic leveling but still have air shocks/struts.

              The bottom line is its a quality product at a very affordable price and i would recommend it.

                  Comments about Monroe Shock Absorber Air Hose Kit:

                  The website said that this kit was needed to install new air leveling shocks. We did not need this kit; it is for eliminating the auto-leveling. We did not have the right ends to install the new shocks, and Advance Auto did not carry the correct parts to install the shocks.

                  • Q:

                    Does this replace everything between the compressor and the struts, or does it just go from the compressor to the tee? It appears from the picture it only has one piece of line.

                    I wrote you the other day and still waiting to hear if it matters if the air hoses on my air shock have to be the same length

                      A:

                      No, it will not be a problem if the size of the Shock Absorber Air Hose is slightly different. However check your air line routing to avoid moving parts. Try to keep them as close to the fender wall as possible. If they stick out, any debris picked up by the tires will be more likely to catch them.

                  • Q:

                    I bought two Monroe MA822 replacement air shocks from you for my 99 Buick Park Avenue. I installed the LR and removed the air tube and reinstalled it in the new shock.

                    I went to remove the air tube from the RR, but no matter how hard I pull, it won't come out. I will probably have to cut it. Then I will have to replace it with another running from the shock to the air compressor. There is some kind of a plug in connection on the air compressor end.

                    Looking at the photo of the adapter kit here the connections to the shock absorbers look the same as the originals, but I don't see it there is a plug type of connector on the opposite end, and what is the Tee for? Is the Tee for an installation where the car did not originally have an automatic level control system? My car has an original level control system with an on board air compressor, control system, etc.

                    Thanks

                      I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                    Will this kit allow independent filling? In other words, two air fills? One for eack shock.

                      I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
