Im in need of some new shocks/struts all around and was looking into getting a pair of Monroe Air Shocks for the rear after doing some research. Is purchasing these a good idea? This will be the first time I've replaced my struts since I had the car. I just hit 100k miles. I'm still looking for a pair for the front. Any suggestions?
Im in the same boat. 100k+. mechanic say they are good, but Im still looking.
Unless you pull a trailer, have a huge stereo or load up the rear, you wont use the air shocks. They are made to level the car only, not to provide a good ride.
Spend the money on a good quality Kyb for performance or Monroe for good ride. Bilstein are good but expensive. There are many suspension kits, but you will pay for them.
I decided tonight to do the job myself. Firestone wants $1000 for shocks and struts and alignment. I can do it for 300.
Why do you want to install air shocks? What is the goal you're trying to attain? Do you want an elevated ride height in the rear?
If you're just looking for a decent, better than oem shock, look at the KYB-GR2s
Fronts are $62.00 and the rears are $34.00 at tirerack.com
