Brought these to replace the stock shocks on my Grand Caravan because I bought a pop up camper and will be using it to tow the pop up. The tongue weight of the popup is around 250 - 300 lbs, I figure the new shocks will help out with the rear end sagging but after installing the new shocks and hooking up the pop up, the rear end still sag the same as the stock shock. Not sure about the claim "A new pair of Monroe Sensa-Trac load adjusting shock absorbers can assist in maintaining ride height when up to 1,200 lbs* of additional weight is loaded.". The new shocks rides fine without the pop up but if that's what I was looking for I would have bought the less expensive ones. Its still good to have new shocks.

Comments about Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber:

Great product!! Worked great for my 03 Chrysler T & C! Replaced my OEM shocks with these and could not believe the difference in the ride! Should have done this last year. Shocks were not showing major wear and still rode well, just had about 40,000 miles on them. A lot of stress on standard shocks carrying mobility equipment. Now the rear doesn't even squat when loading scooter. Stiffened up the rear suspension and improved the ride as well as the handling!! I am very impressed so far. Can't address the longevity of the shocks as this is my first set. But they definitely want be my last.

    Definately worth the little extra money over regular shocks. Installed on '04 Caravan used for occasional towing. Raised the rear end 1.5" upon installation. Towed about 1,500 lbs and it never squatted the rear, very smooth ride also.

      Replaced OEM shocks on my 2007 Grand Caravan SXT to tow a 2760 pound travel trailer. With a WDH these shocks raised my hitch height by at least 1.5 inches and prevent almost all "highway hop". Great product and great price!

            I put a pair of these on my 2007 Town and Country a couple of years ago. They ride great but make allot of spring squeaking noise. Are they improved to eliminate this noise?

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              I'm happy to help, Shade Tree! I have found that the Monroe Sensa-Trac Load Adjusting Shock Absorbers (Part No. 58620) are sometimes noisier than a standard shock absorber. Monroe works to continuously improve their products and a new shock will likely have improvements over the current shock absorbers.

              If you do not require the extra load capacity for your 2007 Chrysler Town & Country, you may find that Monroe OESpectrum Light Truck Shock Absorber (Part No. 37123) provides a great ride while eliminating the additional noise generated by the load adjusting shocks.

              A:

              These Monroe shocks are to manufacturer specifications. Since you have a little more wieght in the back than normal, your going to want to go with a little heavier duty shocks. Try larger tires to increase the distance your Caravan is from the ground. For more information you can contact us at 1-877-ADVANCE or visit www.advanceautoparts.com

              I have no doubt that the extra 384 pounds would not be a problem with these shocks. I'd say perfect.
