    Good, cheap protection for your shocks

    These boots look great, install easily, and keep sand, salt and dust out of your shock seals. Especially helpful for trucks and SUV's.

    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:

      These boots are cheap and easy to install. You put them in with your new shocks, they keep dirt,salt etc from corroding the shock for longer service life. Here in New England, any additional protection from salt for short money is worth it.

        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.

                        How do I affix the tops of these dust boots to Monroe Sensa-trac 37111 front shocks? The retainer shown in the illustration does not come with the shock or the boot. I have a 1999 tacoma 2wd. I've been to two different Advance Auto stores and no one can give me an answer.

                          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.

                          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.
