Rated 5 out of 5 by Works fine Works fine and good value. Great install by pep boys. October 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good fit, good price, seem fine Installed on my 96 Jag XJS. Fit fine, easy installation. Restored front end height which was sagging a bit with the old shocks. Only been a few weeks and a few miles but the new shocks seem fine. Typical pep boys on-line discount made this a good buy. October 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good rear shocks These rear shocks do the job as intended. September 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Strong and economical This is a very easy to use tool. The only one that bring out the upper control arm in my Suburban. August 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for I have used the on line service a couple times & have been very satisfied. Will use it again for future needs. August 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great replacement Great replacement. Easy to install. Excellent ride! August 9, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad shocks It fits my car but invest more and get better shocks. These only last about 10 thousand milies need to replace again. And my tires are bad too now because of these shocks. I won't never buy monroe again March 24, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product very GOOD SERVICE AND TREAT. December 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Reasonable product with a bit of extra bounce Shock fits, but ride has more bounciness than the original shocks. December 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shocks did not fit my car The shocks listed for my car did not fit and I had to return them. Pep Boys needs to improve the way it matches parts to cars. I did get a full and prompt refund, no questions asked, when I returned them. November 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product Good product, great price, nice ride November 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good, reasonably-price shock My application was 2006 Toyota RAV4 (4cyl, FWD). There are few options for aftermarket shocks for the RAV4 series, but I found this Monroe to be a fine mid-price replacement. Will eventually compare to Bilstein on the next go-round. Quality control might be a bit lax; I found my two samples had drastically different rebound performance, and on one sample I had to manually correct (bend back into place) the outer shell quite a bit. Nothing out of the ordinary for general-purpose parts, but slightly disappointing. If you don't want to spend the extra for Bilstein, Monroe is your next best option for rear shocks on the RAV4. With the online discount code, Pep Boys had the best price by far. October 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not bad so far... These OESpectrum shocks were a straightforward install on my 99 VW Passat. Ride is a bit too stiff for me but they may loosen up with some miles. Much better rebound damping than the OE shocks but you tend to feel every bump now. September 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product i give a 10/10 great replacement the best price out there very good quality July 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is priced low, and seems to a quality product. Not wanting to spend the money for a high end shock or strut, I opted for Monroe units for my BMW. So far, I am very happy with the results, and would recommend them to someone on a budget. March 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect replacement Fast install and a perfect replacement for my truck December 3, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ok for the price. Maybe I was expecting to much, but was a little disappointed. They function fine. As good as O.E., I was expecting more. They do fine for the price. Bottom line. You get what you pay for. August 15, 2013
