    Came up as a recommended accessory when researching truck shocks. I ordered a full set, only to discover they fit only the smaller car shocks. They were made well, and I'd probably use on my car if it were AWD and I went off-road a lot.

          Comments about Monroe Shock-Mate Shock Absorber Boot Kit:

          I had bought these boots to fit onto Monroe OESpectrum truck shocks I bought. Unfortunately, they didn't fit at all: getting the boot onto the shock was difficult, and removing was even more difficult! I then spent some time reading reviews of whether or not to even use shock boots, and changed my mind about getting a larger size.

              Worked perfect for my struts. Split end should fit well over the top of the shock where the piston goes into the cylinder. Don't forget to use the zip tie to button it up.

                Well worth the added protection from the elements of the road. They install very easily and are of good quality. The material is very flexible and looks like it will last as long as the shocks.

                    would recomend this on any shock purchase that has only the stem, it will help prolong the life of your shock. Dirt and grime is the number one killer of shocks.

                        The Monroe Magnum Steering Stabilizer (Single Kit) is constructed from high quality urethane for maximum durability. Urethane is a family of rubbers and plastics materials that are used for making molds. Urethane rubber is widely known for its tough properties, being abrasion-resistant, economical, relatively simple to mix and apply, and flexible once it is formed into a mold.

                        A:

                        Yes, it goes over the shock absorber. Monroe-Magnum Steering Stabilizers stop vibration before it reaches the driver. They increase control by reducing steering shimmy and driver fatigue.
