Choose quality
that endures

For your shock and strut replacements


Why does one shock or strut last longer than another?
Why does one brand help keep customers safe and satisfied, while another is more likely to cause an unwanted comeback? 
In short, which brand of shocks and struts should you choose, that can give you peace of mind?




At Monroe®, we understand that professional installers look for one key benefit when choosing shock absorbers and struts for their client’s vehicles: durability. Our research* with installers worldwide has shown that more than 40% of professionals look for durability and are willing to pay a premium for a brand that offers this key benefit. Why? Because durability provides peace of mind that the repair will result in a satisfied customer, rather than an unwanted comeback.

We know that as a professional installer, you work hard to earn the trust of your clients. That's why you need to be confident that the shocks and struts you install will not end up triggering a costly comeback. With Monroe, you can trust that every new shock and strut is engineered and manufactured to endure. Our products are designed with unique features to deliver the durability that professionals demand.


The definition of durability



As an installer, you know that wear and tear are part of the everyday driving experience. This includes the shocks and struts, which help to absorb the impact of bumps and uneven terrain. While it's normal for these components to wear out over time, they should last at least up to 80,000** kilometers before needing replacement.

If shocks and struts wear out sooner than expected, without any accidents or collisions, there may be other factors at play. At Monroe, durability is all about preventing shock leakages. When a shock leaks, it loses its ability to dampen vibrations and impacts, which can lead to premature wear and tear.

There are two key components that can contribute to shock leakages: the seal and the rod. If the rod is dirty, cracked, or not smooth, it can damage the seal over time. This can cause oil to leak out and compromise the performance of the shock. That's why it's important to choose high-quality shocks and struts that are built to endure.


Built Stronger to Last Longer


We're committed to providing you with durable and reliable shock absorbers that will keep your clients’ vehicle running smoothly for years to come. Each Monroe shock absorber and strut is engineered and manufactured to contain three unique features that reduce leakages to make shocks last longer.
These include:
