A good deal?

Monroe Reflex Monotube:

He says they are-


Less than a month, only a few hundred miles. I changed tires, and went to a different shock.



Good firm ride, not mushy like stock.

$100


Is this a good deal?

Hmm made my truck react nicely when driving. Stiff when it needed to be and soft went it needed to be.. wouldnt do heavy wheeling with them but the normal off road the handled great.

I don't do any heavy offroading just checking on the cattle or the crops out on the farm when I have to get stuff done, and hauling deer each November from the fields. And some snowwheeling but that's not too intense for a truck.

I got 4 on my truck and they are ok...nothing to brag about. There are better shocks but for the price (think mine was like $112 for 4 installed) i couldnt argue.
