Monroe is shock absorbers. For over eighty years, Monroe has been the name that auto aficionados associate with the most innovative shocks and suspension components as well as hydraulic struts. In fact, Monroe invented the modern shock absorber. The company started out in 1916 manufacturing tire pumps, but when auto manufacturers began including spare tires as standard equipment in the mid 1920's, the company turned to the production of a new invention that was based on principles similar to those used on their air pumps. The Monroe Shock Absorber was the result, and quickly became the number one choice of the auto industry and auto enthusiasts alike. Whether your car is used on the freeway or the speedway, Monroe Shock Absorbers are the most durable, comfortable-riding shocks available. How will you know when to replace your shocks? Here's a simple test: go out and push down forcefully on the hood of your vehicle. It should bounce once, then stop. If it keeps bouncing for a minute or more, you have worn shocks that need to be switched out at the earliest opportunity. Worn shocks aren't just uncomfortable, they're hazardous!
