Check Vehicle Fit

Monroe® Reflex® monotube shocks are specifically engineered to provide better handling, control and performance for light trucks and SUV's. These shocks feature a high-pressure gas charge that separates the unit internal oil and nitrogen to provide additional spring rate, helping to maximize damping efficiency and control. To further enhance ride control characteristics, Monroe® Reflex® monotube shocks include a hydraulic lockout to cushion the impact as the vehicle suspension is fully extended.

Product Features:
  • Hydraulic Lockout: Patented unique hydraulic lock-out isolates impact at the limits of suspension travel
  • All Weather Fluid: Contains special modifiers to reduce friction and ensure smooth rod reaction.
  • High Pressure Nitrogen Gas Charged: High-pressure charge (240-260 PSI) provides a quicker response for excellent vehicle control
  • Shock Housing: High strength to resist damage and provide longer service life.
  • Nitrocarburized Rod: For long service life
  • Fluon Banded Piston: The fluon band provides consistent sealing between the piston and pressure tube which delivers better control and increased durability.
  • Free Floating Dividing Piston: Separates shock fluid from high-pressure gas charge.

I think the mechanics at the Shop I go to are Lazy, I have 160k on my hoe and around 130 they made it sound like they where practically still new, I knew they were full of it.
There was BILSTEN Stock Shocks on and I replaced them with these and Holy Moly what a Difference.
The Front especially. It leveled out the front end with the rear and when I replaced the rear it help lift it back up a little. Over all ride is unbelievably different. My main focus was every time I go off road its HARD in your GUT. I knew it was going o make a little difference but not as much as it did.
Ive read other peoples negative responses and when it comes down to the install its all about having the right tools and using a little elbow grease.
It was more difficult to take off the wheel than actually replacing the shocks.

Smooth
No more Rolling
No more Diving
Better Launch

Ive had KYB's in many other vehicles and they have been OK but never in a Truck before.
So I tried these and no regrets.

I put these on my yukon xl because the guy at the counter said these were the best. They rode like they were just straight rods instead of shocks. Very hard. Yes, the truck handles better. I looked at this site and found at the bottom of the specs for this part it says "not for ZW7 smooth ride package" would have been nice if the guy asked me if that is what I have. I ended up with the regular reflex shocks

Great shocks for replacing the stock shocks on a 03 1500 Chevrolet tahoe. Only issue was having to figure out how to get the metal collar between the rubber bushings.

  • Q:

    I just picked up 2 shock absorbers at Advance in Cadillac for my 2003 Crown Victoria and I notice one is an OESpectrum 5993 and one is 5993ST. Both have number 5993. Can I use them or is one of them the wrong one?
    Thanks, Denny

      A:

      Yes, Denny, you can use both of these shock absorbers with the part numbers 5993 and 593ST for your 2003 Ford Crown Victoria. The part number 5993 is an OE Spectrum shock absorber model and the part number 5993ST is Sens Trac shock absorber model. These Monroe Sensa-Trac shocks and struts with PSD (Position Sensitive Dampening) and the Safe Tech system combine their exclusive precision-tapered grooves in the pressure tube with application-engineered valving. They allow the shocks and struts to adjust more rapidly to changing road and weight conditions than any other shock or strut available. Adjust to rapidly changing road and weight conditions with these Monroe Sensa-Trac shocks and struts.

  • Q:

    I am considering purchasing front and rear Monroe Shocks for my 2004 K1500 Chevy Suburban. I am trying to decide whether the Reflex Monotube or Regular Reflex would be better.
    Part Number 911505 Monroe Monotube Reflex Front
    Part Number 911178 Monroe Reflex Truck Shock Absorber Front

    Part Number 911506 Monroe Monotube Reflex Rear
    Part Number 911166 Monroe Reflex Truck Shock Absorber Rear
    Any information on why one would possibly be a better purchase other than price would be appreciated.
