Came up as a recommended accessory when researching truck shocks. I ordered a full set, only to discover they fit only the smaller car shocks. They were made well, and I'd probably use on my car if it were AWD and I went off-road a lot.

        Comments about Monroe Shock-Mate Shock Absorber Boot Kit:

        Bought these for a shock replacement project for the front of my 89' GMC Sierra C1500. They were easy to install and protect the shocks like I wanted. I'd recommend these to everyone who is in the market for a shock replacement because not protecting your shock absorbers from weather and foreign objects are why they don't last as long as they should. For a truck a year younger than myself, that is still going strong, it seemed like a bad idea to pass this up. Why not do it the best possible way?

                    A:

                    The Monroe Magnum Steering Stabilizer (Single Kit) is constructed from high quality urethane for maximum durability. Urethane is a family of rubbers and plastics materials that are used for making molds. Urethane rubber is widely known for its tough properties, being abrasion-resistant, economical, relatively simple to mix and apply, and flexible once it is formed into a mold.

                    A:

                    Yes, it goes over the shock absorber. Monroe-Magnum Steering Stabilizers stop vibration before it reaches the driver. They increase control by reducing steering shimmy and driver fatigue.
