MONROE® ORIGINAL SHOCK ABSORBERS
Sometimes the name says it all. Monroe Original shock absorbers feature the same technologies – and are often manufactured in the same facilities – as the original equipment (OE) shocks found on millions of popular passenger vehicles across all segments.
YOUR CAR CAN FEEL LIKE NEW AGAIN
Monroe Original shock absorbers are engineered to compensate for the normal wear that has occurred on a vehicle’s springs and other suspension components. This means that by choosing Monroe Original over many competing shocks, you will be more likely to appreciate the benefits of your ride control investment – and enjoy like-new ride and handling.
RELIABILITY & VALUE
Because Monroe Original shocks have an extensive OE pedigree, you can be confident they will offer consistent, reliable performance and outstanding value. After all, that’s why leading global vehicle manufacturers choose Monroe shock absorbers.
IT’S A MATCH
Designing replacement shock absorbers is much like developing corrective lenses for your eyes – each vehicle is different. This is why every Monroe Original shock is engineered to address the corresponding vehicle model’s unique ride and handling requirements. If the car was originally equipped with gas-charged twin-tube shocks, the Monroe Original units will feature the same technology. Monotube shocks? If they were the OE choice, they will be available through the Monroe Original range.
Monroe engineers update product damping specifications based on the actual performance and wear patterns seen in many original equipment shock absorbers. By improving overall damping characteristics, therefore, Monroe Original shocks can help make the car feel like new again.
ALWAYS REPLACE IN PAIRS
Always install new shocks in pairs on the front and/or rear of the vehicle to avoid unwanted ride and handling problems. Also be sure to install a new Monroe Mounting Kit (when applicable) and Monroe Protection Kit with each new shock to help ensure long, reliable service.
