"Apparently I have never installed gas shocks before. Put them in rear of Torino. Had to be compressed to install and they were very tight and tough to get this done. Wish there was an easier way to do this. They came with tape tip to tip to keep them closed but had to remove this in order to put on washer and rubber grommet this opened them up to full length. It was a challenge but finally got it." posted by: on June 27, 2014

"These shocks were added to replace some old overload shocks and to match the front KYB's. They make the ride much better and provide great handling as well. I have always been happy with KYB and these shocks do not dissapoint in any way." posted by: Rick on January 25, 2008

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. Furthermore, these shock absorbers include heavy gauge calibrated springs for extra control and comfort and help maintain an even ride height even with up to 1,200 lbs of additional weight, making them ideal for light trucks.

Features:

  • 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
  • Nitrogen gas charged interior reduces aeration, ensuring constant tire to road contact and improves ride and handling
  • Nitrocarburized rod lengthens service life of non-dust shield units

"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." posted by: Falconwagon on June 5, 2014

"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." posted by: Tony on June 3, 2012
