I liked them and they did have new hardware as compared to previous reviews, but the shocks were 1 full inch shorter than stock and if you have raised your torsion bars 1.5" to level the front of your truck with the back, then they are going to be a little short. The ride is good, but there is no upward dampening now.

Shocks work just fine , they do as they are suppost to,Just would be nice if they weren't missing parts.The hardware package was unopened and missing 1 each washer and rubber snubber which I found out after I had the truck up on jacks and stands and didn't have another vechicle to run back to Advance Auto Parts and get a replacement kit.Grant it , it is not the place of the store salesman to check sealed boxes for all the complete parts ,tho ,the customer should be able to rely on getting all he needs to complete the job when purchasing parts in seald boxes.My dissatifaction falls on MONROE SHOCKS for having shabby quality control,,,,again ,maybe MADE IN THE USA do'es have more to it than meets the eye.Wont use MONROE SHOCKS next time I need them..

Junk on a 3/4 ton 4x4

Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

These might be ok for a 1/2 ton truck, but they simply do not have enough damping for the heavier springs on my 3/4 ton truck. The 13 year old stock units were doing a better job and I thought they were shot.

Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

They came out of the box and installed very easily. Air wrench cuts your removal and install time by 2/3rds.when you take the upper bolts off the original front shocks you will have to hold the bolt shaft with another wrench to keep it from spinning.

    Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

    Recommended install was with wheels on the ground. I used the ramps that I have. Gave me enough room to get the old shocks out and install the new ones. Once the new shock was slid into the upper bracket you do have to compress it to get the lower end to line up. That was the only issue I had, but not really an issue. I compressed the shock, slid it into place and when it extended it caught my thumb. Didn't pinch me just my thumb was stuck. Just had to reposition and compress the shock again to slide my thumb out. Kind of funny but if my thumb had been a little higher than where it was it would have been pinched. So watch out for that.

      Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic LT Shock Absorber:

      Does not fit 2004 Silverado with 5.3 liter motor. The correct shocks have a stud on top and a knuckle on bottom. These have a clevis type bracket and did not work.

                  Yes, the only difference between a Z71 silverado and mine without the Z71 package is the shocks they use. Meaning, these should work for you with no problems. Worst case is that you have to return them if you don't like them, but I am very happy with these shocks on my 2000 silverado 4x4.
