Thoughts on Monroe Spectrum Shocks?
« on: March 24, 2021, 05:38:35 PM »
I'll be changing my front shocks sometime in the next month or so.  A lot of sites point me to Monroe's OEMSpectrum Shocks.  The reviews on this shock seem to rank from "great shock for the price" to "they only last 3 years tops".  Anyone have any thoughts on these shocks?  Should I look for some KYB's instead?

Thanks.

I'm not familiar with the Spectrum line, but anyone that says something good, but adds...for the price...is just saying you get what you pay for. Otherwise, there's no reason to mention the price.

Thanks guy's!  If it gets a seal of approval here, then I'm in.

Normally when I'm unfamiliar with a brand, I'll check out the reviews on their sites that are from past, to current users of said product.  Hence why I mentioned that the reviews were sort of mixed.

If the price is good might be worth giving a go. Then we can read the review here too!

I finally decided to go with the Monroe OESpectrum shocks.  Hard to really rate them, as they have just been recently installed.  From the little driving I have done since then (both city & highway), I'm quite impressed.  I was looking for shocks that gave a relatively smooth ride, but in the same sense, a little stiffness for handling and cornering purposes.  So far, so good.  Now to find out how long they'll last.
