Monroe Sensa-Trac Load Adjusting Twin-Tube Shock Absorber

MONROE SENSA-TRAC LOAD ADJUSTING TWIN-TUBE SHOCK ABSORBERS

Monroe Sensa-Trac Load Adjusting Twin-Tube Shock Absorbers with PSD (position sensitive damping) and the Safe Tech system combine exclusive precision tapered grooves in the pressure tube with application engineered valving and Fluon banded piston. These features are designed to significantly improve the ride, handling, and safety characteristics of vehicles.

  • Unique precision tapered grooves in the pressure tube perform like an additional stage of valving for optimum ride tuning
  • Computer designed heavy gauge calibrated coil spring offers maximum performance without adding harsh suspension feel
  • Contains all weather fluid with special modifiers to reduce friction and ensure smooth rod reaction
  • Full displaced valving provides better valving range on compression and extension cycles
  • Fluon banded piston provides consistent sealing between the piston and pressure tube which delivers better control and increased durability

Customer Review: (see review/s)
  • Nice shocks as expected from Monroe. The packaging included two packets with two washers and two bushings in each. Unless I don t understand how to install them (and I basically reproduced how the old ones were in) that s only half the hardware needed for the installation. I used the best of the old hardware to make up the difference.Installation takes some muscle to compress the springs. I don t have any way to compress the springs so I used a bottle jack between the axle and frame to lengthen the distance between the shock mounts and that worked fine.Shocks are new seem to be fine and are sure an upgrade over the old air shocks that a previous owner had installed.

  • had to use some of the old bushings. stiffed up the rear end a bit. Just what i was looking for to get me by.
