    Comments about Monroe Gas-Matic Passenger Car Shock Absorber:

    I used them on my 1991 buick century because the old shocks were shot and were on their last leg and it works great, i didn't remove the old shock mount because it worked anyway but it gave the car a better ride in the rear end and not as much bounce as it previously had with the old shocks. The gas shock just seems to be a better bet then the your typical fluid shock. They are relitivly easy to replace and not too hard to handle deffinently a do-it-yourself kinda project. I wouldn't use them on larger cars or light duty trucks because i personally don't think that they would hold out on anything heavier then a compact to small car.
