Monroe® OESpectrum® shock absorbers are engineered specifically for foreign nameplate vehicles and feature the latest global original equipment valving technologies. Developed through years of research and on-vehicle testing, Monroe® OESpectrum® units provide an unprecedented level of handling precision and control while filtering out the ride harshness commonly encountered on many foreign nameplate applications. This unique blend of control and comfort is made possible through Tenneco's 'Twin Technology Active Control System', an exclusive internal damping control technology first developed for leading global vehicle manufacturers. Tenneco's Twin Technology consists of its latest Impact Control Valve (ICV), which delivers exceptional control under virtually all driving conditions, and a patented Low Speed Tunability (LST) piston design that isolates impact-related noise, vibration and harshness.

Product Features:
  • All Weather Fluid: Contains special modifiers to reduce friction and ensure smooth rod reaction.
  • Full Displaced Valving: Tuned specifically for each application, this valving automatically adjusts to road extremes to provide consistency and ride
  • Fluon Banded Piston: The fluon band provides consistent sealing between the piston and pressure tube which delivers better control and increased durability.
  • Twin Technology: Impact Control Valve (ICV), delivers exceptional control under virtually all driving conditions, and patented Low Speed Tunability (LST) piston design that isolates impact-related noise, vibration and harshness.
  • Nitrogen Gas Charged: For improved ride and handling, helps maintain tire to road contact by reducing aeration - on most applications
  • Special Seal: 'Self-lubricating' fluid seal designed to retain gas without excessive wear or friction.
  • 1-3/8 inch (34.9 mm) bore (On most applications)
  • 5/8-inch (15.9 mm) diameter piston rod (On most applications)

Great Shocks

Definitely don't waste your time on the cheaper Monroe shocks (yellow). These will feel and ride so much better as the cheap ones didn't seem to make much difference at all.

            Comments about Monroe OESpectrum Light Truck Shock Absorber:

            After reviewing the comments on the cheaper Monroe shock (yellow), I decided to spend the extra and install set of these. As far as installation, it is a shock absorber (2 or 3 bolts) remove old one, install the new one. Ride seems much better, with less wheel shake, I also replaced the steering stabilizer. Only complaint, one shock was missing one nut for the installation, Advance quickly corrected this.

                Monroe has always build quality products and these continue the tradition.
                The ride and handling improved dramatically (as expected) when compared to the worn OEM's on my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
                Not a simple installation but doable by most experienced shade-tree mechanics.

                      I installed these today and it went pretty painlessly. I had to heat one of the bolts so it wouldn't break. I went for a test drive and heard some clunking. I had to tighten one of the bolts more, another test drive proved good. The ride was tighter, just like new. I recommend these shocks.

                        Comments about Monroe OESpectrum Light Truck Shock Absorber:

                        As a fifty-ish year old, I haven't done much mechanic work in a while. With only a couple of (supplied) bolts and a nut, I figured installation of shocks couldn't be too difficult, so I decided to do it myself. It was an easy, straight forward installation, which did not require removal of tires. I did use a floor jack for easier access. Product was highly rated by those I asked, who recommended to stay away from cheaper alternatives. Product was exactly as advertised. Ride and handling were much improved. Only possible complaint is I wish top stem was still machined so a socket (6mm or 1/4") would fit to speed installation. Otherwise, this product is a good value for the price.

                        • Q:

                          How complicated is it to install the front shocks on a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo? Is it a simple bolt in, or does a lot of stuff have to be disassembled? Any adjustments that need to be made. Thanks.
