I completed the front shocks a week ago using the Monroe Gas-Matic shocks and the ride and more specifically the handling was tremwndously improved. I didn't think the rears would make all that much difference at the time so I never purchased the rears. A week later while hauling a mid size load in my Ranger I was surprised at how much sway I was feeling. The new front shocks made it quite apparent that the poor handling I was now expieriencing while carrying a load was due to the rear shocks. I put on the new rear shocks picked up another mid size load and it was a night and day difference in the whole ride and handling. I should have done all this 50,000 miles earlier

Purchased for my 1996 Ford Ranger,however, I haven't noticed a great deal of difference in performance. I believe I replaced the original shocks, so I expected a significant gain. Suppose you get what you pay for as these were the cheapest.
