"Have used Monroe shocks for many years. Although the shock performance was adequate for this installation. I found the shock to be a bit flimsy. Seem to lack the quality of years gone by. However would still reccommend this shock for folks on a budget."

"Very impressed w these shocks. Got them to replace KYB gas shocks on my '92 Land Cruiser.
KYBs listed at $60 some, these were about half price. The old ones seemed to be working fine, but connection fell apart; replacement bolts/bushings seemed to be unavailable. So I got these Monroes to put on.
As I said, KYBs seemed to be working fine. Bumper jump test yielded very few, and very small, after bounces. But the '92 Cruiser is a heavy vehicle, and when I put these on the improvement was dramatic. Much smoother softer ride, along w being more controlled. Also noticed that the slight shimmy due to difficult to perfectly balance, large center hole wheels, was noticeably improved.
Dunno how long they're gonna last. At $30, I worry some. Also, can't imagine construction is as quality as the KYBs; only reason I gave three stars in that category. But for the past couple months, I've been really happy w what I got.

"It's hard to go wrong with Monroe shock absorbers. Great fit and finish and the vehicle handles like new with the shocks installed.
Check your hardware packets before the installation as 2 of my shocks, (I replaced all four), were missing the nut required to secure the top of the shock. Not a big deal unless the vehicle is disabled due to NO shocks installed and you are unable to run to the store for replacements."
Pros: Name brand high quality product
Cons: Missing hardware
