Bought a pair of these 3 years ago for my Grand Caravan, lasted less than 6 months and then one of them blew a seal, had to be without my van for almost a month while I removed them and sent them to these guys to get them replaced under warranty. Now, not but a couple years after, another one has blown out a seal and is in need of replacement AGAIN. You never replace them individually, as any quality ASE certified mechanic will tell you, so at $450+ a pair, this is NOT a cheap endeavor. I am going to sell this van so I NEVER have to put up with this PROBLEM or these parts AGAIN.

The OEM/KYB/MONROE prices had scared me away so finding the original inventors model at $197 made this an easy choice. Everything is now better than when I got the '97 Grand Caravan AWD used - even worth it as the family "truck". Read other websites where cheap "regular" shocks don't do the job !


You have to use these by Car Nut, October 9, 2007

I have worked on my own cars for 40 years, I have some idea what I am talking about. I even have an automotive website for car enthusiasts. Here is the thing on these shocks - if your car came with these, you have to use them, or else change your springs. These shocks contain self adjusting internal springs, to keep the ride height constant with varying loads. My full passenger load is over 1300 pound on the minivan, without these it would sag when loaded and ride too high and rough when empty, assuming the springs were changed to correct for these being absent. If you just put regular shocks on a car designed for these, it will sag and drag. While they are expensive, the dealer want $400 each for these, instead of $210 here - it is the same brand (Sachs). The cars springs are calibrate to work with these. If you go to a different type of shock, it takes a different spring on the rear. Good news is, that along with the self leveling characteristics of these shocks, you also get vehicle control in evasive maneuvers where the car would spin out without them. If you are like me, a cheapskate, you will grimace as you pay for these, but, when my wife is off driving the kids around in the minivan, I am not about to but them at extra risk to save a few bucks. If you are wondering if you car even uses this type, look at the shock, these things are huge, maybe 4 inches in diameter. I looked all over the net, searched literally for hours, this was the least expensive place I could find them.
