Rated 5 out of 5 by Marcin Great product for the money
I have had these on my vehicles before and they do last a long time. These are for those who want their vehicle to ride like new again. I would say they are meant more for comfort than handling but do not make handling worse than OEM just ride better than OEM. To get that new car feeling again these are what you need. The price compared to other models simply can't be beat.

New shocks really helped the handling of my Astro van.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meatman These new air shocks provide a smooth , stable drive.
My truck had 220,000 miles. The tire wear on the rear tires was "choppy" as the tires were bouncing up and down and streering was negatively effected.
After adding the four new shockjs and an alignment its smooth driving and I feel safe. Thankks New Castle Pep Boys another great job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by g60racer Low cost = low quality
I'm very disappointed with this purchase. Though the front struts from Monroe at their entry level price point were of decent quality, these are not up to OEM spec. The first ones I installed were defective, making horrible groaning, clicking, and squeaking sounds. They also did not appear to function at all as dampeners - the back end of our Toyota Sienna bounced around as if there were no shock absorbers at all, with these installed initially.
Unfortunately, we installed the the day before a long road trip and did not have time to replace them before the trip. So we were subjected to the noises and lack of control for the entirety of a 1000 mile excursion.
Upon returning home, I immediately removed them and took them back to Pep Boys, where there was some confusion about how to go about replacing them. Though they were obviously defective (the mechanical noises they were making could be heard easily, just working them by hand), I was first told that I'd have to pay an additional fee to get them swapped out with shocks of the same part number.
Fortunately, this was due to a salesperson who just didn't understand how to do a warranty exchange, and the manager straightened it all out quickly. I received new shocks, confirmed they were in good order, and easily installed them.
Still - even now with properly functioning, non-defective shocks absorbers on the car, they don't seem like they have aggressive enough dampening for a heavy car like a minivan.
If I were to do it over again, I'd choose heavy duty shock absorbers like KYB GR2's or Bilstien HDs. I might be tempted to go with a higher level of Monroe shocks, but for the price they start at, it's probably a better bargain to go with a name brand renowned for longevity. Monroe recommends replacing shocks at 25,000 miles in some of its own literature, which leads me to question their commitment to longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HotnVegas when the ride gets rough get some shocks!
Monroe makes good shocks..good oem replacements.
driving older cars you might not notice the bumps with all the other squeaks but take a peek and see if your shocks are leaking fluid or if the car dives when you stop...you may need some... pepboys has been running alot of %'s off take them when you can. got 2 for my pick-up about $21 each (own install) sadly some cars require spring compressors so keep that in mind for some diy's hope this helps :^)

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShorewoodTOM exact fit, all parts present, ride acceptable
Installation went as anticipated. I was slightly disappointed with the small improvement in the ride - perhaps I expected too much from new shocks and no brand / model would have met my expectations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jeepfan Poor choice for 4x4 jeep
I got these shocks for my 06 Grand Cherokee lerado 4X4. With in 3 weeks they started to rust and overall bad ride. I got them because the PepBoys site said they were recommended and because of the price. I have changed them out for the $75 shocks. When I removed the 3 week old monroes You could tell they were too under sized for my Jeep. Sometimes cheaper is not better

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyDog Good shock for a great price
Shocks arrived well packaged and undamaged. The only problem I had was one of the bushings wasn't pressed fully into the rubber which caused the shock not to fit the bracket. I ground it down to fit and worked just fine. Should be 4.5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunburn What I wanted in a name brand shock
Two trips to store.
Wrong shocks for front first time. I asked for shocks to replace ones with coil springs up front and was given shocks for torsion bars up front.
I can overlook the mistake because of the 25% off I received for ordering online.

These shocks are great for replacing stock shocks. They do the job at a great price. I changed them myself in a total of about 15 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharlesG Excellent for the price
I switched from a coil over lowering kit to these rear shock and I couldn't be happier. The ride is excellent and feel very similar to stock. I've only had them on my car for a month but so far so good. If you're looking for a inexpensive replacement this is definetly the way to go.

Had about 170,000 miles on the original shocks that came on the SUV when we purchased our Explorer new, "a little overdue." Drives like new again. money well spent.
