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..

            I have over 248,000 miles on my 2000 Silverado with original shocks. Needless to say, the truck rides like new now. Installation is pretty easy as long as you have an impact wrench. Also I suggest not cutting the plastic retainers on the shock until you have one end bolted up. This will keep the shock partially compressed making it easier to align the bolt holes. While securing the loose end, cut the retainer and guide the shock as it extends while inserting the remaining mounting bolt.

              I didn't really have much problem installing these. All necessary hardware was included and fit well. Changed all four shocks on my truck to these. Quite an improvement over the stock shocks! A good OEM replacement product. They are not high-performance style shocks...don't expect them to be. They work well for the use intended. Made in the USA and economically priced, as well. I don't care if they are yellow. A win-win!

                    This shock absorbers were really easy and quick to install on 99 silverado 1500. They seem to perform well and the metal cover for the rod is much bettr than the plastic in the stock. Good price to.

                        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.
