It'll come as no surprise that one of the biggest names in ride control products, Monroe shocks, also has one of the biggest selections of products designed to help your car ride more smoothly, handle better, and corner with more authority. Monroe shocks come in versions to help your car track more safely, your truck haul heavier loads, and to help you regain some ride quality without breaking the bank. All Monroe shocks work on the same basic principle though: fluid is forced through an orfice when your wheel compresses or rebounds. Since the fluid in your Monroe shocks can only travel through the orfice at a certain speed, the Monroe shocks provide some damping, or shock absorption. Monroe shocks are essential for controlling your car's springswithout Monroe shocks to damp their action, your car would simply bounce for miles after hitting a bump or pothole. Monroe shocks also can shorten your braking distances and help you turn corners with ease. Keep in mind that shocks wear so gradually that yours may be worn out even though your car doesn't ride noticeably different. Adding a new set of Monroe shocks, whether they're gas charged Monroe shocks or standard Monroe shocks, can make a huge difference that you'll notice right away!Most of Monroe's years of shock absorber technology is also available in the form of Monroe struts for your car, truck, or van. Monroe struts are packed with high-tech damping innovations that help provide a stable ride and exceptional cornering ability on your vehicle. After all, Monroe struts are essentially Monroe shocks with some added pieces that allow the Monroe struts to function as a structural suspension member. Monroe struts frequently incorporate the spring perch, and where available, replaceable cartridges may be fitted to your Monroe struts rather than replacing the entire unit. But at the heart of it all, your Monroe struts perform the same function that the shocks do: damping excess suspension movement for improved ride control, handling, and braking performance. The Reflex, Monro-matic, and Sensa-Trac lines of Monroe struts are all premium replacement ride control items for most passenger cars, light trucks, and vans, and are well suited to OE replacement duty. So find the Monroe struts that fit your application and be prepared for a pleasant surprise when you find out just how affordable new Monroe struts can be for your car.Do you enjoy towing things with your trucksboats, trailers, campers, even other trucks? Maintain a safe, level ride height on your tow vehicle by using Monroe air shocks to smooth the ride. Monroe air shocks incorporate all of the premium features found in standard Monroe gas shocks, like all-weather fluid and advanced valving. These items also help Monroe air shocks maintain their composure. But Monroe air shocks go a step further by adding a large air chamber that can inflate with as much as 150 psi even with your vehicle loaded. That translates into a stable ride height even with 1,200 pounds of additional weight on your truck. And Monroe air shocks don't have to be used to their full capacity every time: You can add as little as 20 psi to your Monroe air shocks to compensate for a light load, or add the full amount for more than a half ton. The custom air fitting on Monroe air shocks is designed to resist leakage even at extreme pressures, and Monroe air shocks utilize a sintered iron piston for exceptionally long service life. Your Monroe air shocks come with one pair of shocks, air line, fittings, and a fill kit, so all you need to do is follow the directions and you're ready to roll. Then you can pick up whatever you want to haul confident that your Monroe air shocks will handle the load.
