New Monroe Reflex Shocks 2000 Ext cab


Recommended Posts

Well, I put some new Monroe Reflex shocks on my 2000 silverado 4x4 ext cab. I really like them! I used p/n 911151 for the front and 911152 for the rear. The cornering is excellent! The ride is stiffer than the old red shocks, but not too much. My truck has 98k miles on it and the old stock shocks were shot. The right rear won't extend when compressed and the right front and right rear made a gurgling sound when i compressed them. I was considering the Bilstein's or the Edelbrock IAS performers, but for my mostly highway driving, these are quite satisfactory for the price!

 

I got them from PEP Boys for 42.99 each. Changing them was pretty straight forward, but the fronts only had 2 huge washers and grommets, the old factory ones has washers, grommets, and a plastic "guide tube" for lack of a better definition. I'm not sure if I needed that for the new ones or not.

 

I'm still waiting for my Michelin LTX M/S tires to come in, to replace the Firestone Steeltex stock tires, My truck drives Great...I'm a happy camper.

Yea, the Reflex rocks.

 

I had mine installed about 4 or 5 months ago. I went down to the NTB down the road from me and had them install a set of Monroe Sena-traks. They were cheaper than the Relfexs and less expensive. My truck is old, so I didn't see the need behind putting the expensive shocks in my truck. I had talked about the Reflex but ultimatly decided against it. They were running a buy 3, get one free so I was very happy about my purchase.

 

When I got back to pick my truck up they had installed the Reflexs instead of the Sensa-traks. :cheers: After telling the service manager about my perdicament, he replied with.."well..I can't charge for you what you didn't want...so I guess I'll charge you for the cheaper ones". AND to top it off, I got the rebate for more expensive shock.

Faced the same thing when I changed mine - wasn't sure whether to use the stock washers/grommets/tube either. I used the parts that came with the Monroe's and have been "monitoring" them to see if they come loose, rattle, etc. and have not experienced any issues in over 2000 miles. Should be good to go...
