Just installed these on my 2005 F150 and the ride improvement is nice. I am eager to see how they handle towing our boat. Shocks come in pairs (two per box).NOTE: These shocks do NOT come pre-compressed. If you watch many Youtube how-two videos, they often assume you are installing pre-compressed shocks, which allow you to install the shocks without jacking up the truck. Since these don’t come compressed, you will need to jack up the rear end and put jack stands under the frame so that the rear tires are off the ground. Then, after attaching the shocks at the top end, you can put a jack under the rear differential and raise or lower the suspension enough that the shocks fit perfectly. At that point, install the lower bolts and finger tighten. Then, drop the truck so the wheels are supporting the truck’s weight and torque the nuts to spec. If you do it this way, it’s a 30-60 minute job.Adding these to my F-150 greatly enhanced the towing of my 7500lb travel trailer. The truck sits almost perfectly level (no tail drop) with these installed. There also seems to be less sway when large trucks pass me on the highway. A very noticeable improvement over stock.I'm pretty sure it's my hauling demands that shortened the life of my set. With that said they felt great, gave a little lift, and felt solid on and off road. The shocks have a rubber sleeve to protect against the spring. In my case it seemed as a heavy load would make the springs rub against sad rubber protector making a poping/cracking sound as you bounced over any uneven road. This became a little annoying diring a unexpected 1,500 mile haul. I beleive it may of warped the spring and the sound now continues. Once again though, this was a maximum weight capacity haul in rough conditions. I'm wanting to put a set on my jeep, I just don't think they're are really built to "help" loads, and I don't think they were suggesting it in the first place. Just a good stout set of shocks.I put these on my 2005 F150 with about 200,000 miles on it. The truck had a leveling kit on the front when I bought, so I don't how much the front end was lifted. With eve a few hundred pounds of load in the bed, the back end would be lower than the front. The shocks raised the back end about 1.5 inches giving the truck a slight positive rake. My camper has about 450lb tongue weight. With the camper on, my truck now rides level. The ride with the new shocks is smooth loaded and unloaded.
Exactly what I was looking for. My old shocks were shot so I definitely needed new shocks. I was also going to do an add-a-leaf in the rear. I was recommended these by a friend so I figured, wth I will give them a shot and kill 2 birds with one stone. What a difference these made. Not only is the ride 100% better than it was, it raised the rear just at 2 inches after settling. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Price is very fair. I would recommended these to anyone without a doubt!Prompt shipping and package contents all appear in good order as expected. No rust or oxidation on any metal surfaces and shocks cycle well. I took them apart (very easy to do btw) so I can get the spring powdercoated red to match my front 4.5 suspension lift for my 2018 Silverado. These monroe 58643's are the perfect collapsed and extended lengths for a 3-6 inch lift on a newer body style GM truck. I'm going to rattle can the shock body silver to match the front Freedom Offroad struts. All in all in very happy with Monroe and I will update my review once I get these installed! Carry on.Installed these on a 2007 f150 xl work truck. The truck is loaded with tools and supplies at all times and seemed to sag a bit. Prior to install I measured 37.5" from the ground to the wheel well, after the install I measured 39.0" from the ground to the wheel well. I believe that these shocks provide additional support to the suspension, so the 1.5" of lift likely would not happen if you a driving around with an empty box. The install is slightly more difficult than standard shocks. The springs prevent compression of the shocks. I installed them by using the provided scissor jack to lift the rear of the truck at the receiver hitch, and lifting until the tires were almost off the ground, this required a block under the jack. Then bolt in the bottom, then you can pry the top into place with a screw driver.NOTE: This contains 2 SHOCKS, you only need to add one of this to your cart to get 2 shocks, they are SOLD IN PAIRS.That being said, I installed these on my 05 f150 to replace the OEM shocks at 107k miles. Regular unloaded ride did not change much, except for better on bumpy roads, but not any more harsh. I'd say more like the OEM ride would have been when new. Now where these excel is when you drop a trailer on the back. NO SAG at all! My trailer used to "level" my truck when hooked up, now when the trailer is on the back of the truck, you can't even tell, NO MORE SAG. Also, when towing, the trailer no longer makes the back of the pickup bounce when going over bumps, its soo solid you'd swear the trailer wasn't even back there.Easy to install, don't even need to take the tires off. Just place jack under the FRAME of the truck in the rear (do not put jack under the rear diff!!). Unbolt bottom shock bolt, then the top, and remove old shock. Bolt top of new shock in, but not tight yet. Now jack the truck up so the suspension unloads (i.e. hangs down on the side you are working on). Jack it up until the bottom shock bolt hole lines up. Tighten both top and bottom, then let truck down. Rinse and repeat on other side, then enjoy the ride!

Monroe Load Adjusting Shock Absorber
Ideal for light trucks that that tow or carry varying loads, Monroe load adjusting shock absorbers include a heavy gauge calibrated spring that adjusts to road and weight conditions to provide extra control when operating conditions get more demanding.
Hardworking vehicles that tow trailers or carry varying loads can count on Monroe load adjusting shocks to reduce sag when under load. Not just for ride comfort, shocks are necessary for the safe handling of your vehicle. By maintaining vertical loads placed up on the tires, shocks help ensure consistent tire-to-road contact. Shocks also help maintain a balanced ride by providing resistance to vehicle bounce, roll and sway as well as brake dive and acceleration squat.
CAUSES amp; CONSEQUENCES OF SHOCK FAILURE
Like many parts on your vehicle, shocks are subject to wear. Causes include damaged bushings, exposure to the elements, loss of oil viscosity and deteriorated components. Driving with worn shocks can result in problems ranging from reduced braking efficiency, tire wear, loss of stability and damage to other suspension parts.
IMPORTANCE OF MAINTAINING RIDE HEIGHT
Proper ride height is crucial to vehicle durability, performance and safety. When inspecting a vehicle, don’t just check the static ride height. The dynamic ride height –the ride height of a vehicle in motion –may tell a different story. The cause of dynamic ride height issues is often worn or damaged coil or air springs, depending on the vehicle suspension. Don’t just replace the shock –be sure to also inspect for and replace worn coil/air springs.
IMPORTANCE OF ALIGNMENT
Always perform an alignment whenever replacement shocks, struts or other ride control parts are installed. Camber, toe and caster settings can all be affected by installing new shocks. Failure to make sure the vehicle’s alignment is within factory specifications can lead to problems like premature tire wear.
HOW TO CONDUCT A SHOCK INSPECTION
Shocks may not show any visible signs of wear, make sure to request a ride control inspection every time your vehicle is brought in for service to ensure they’re in optimal operating condition. When inspecting a vehicle’s shocks: assess how the vehicle is used and perform ride and physical evaluations. Get an understanding of the vehicle’s repair history, the way the vehicle handles and its intended use for clues if the shocks might need changing. Next, take the vehicle for a test drive to determine whether the vehicle’s steering, stopping and stability are compromised. Wrap up the inspection with a physical examination for symptoms of wear which may indicate new shocks are required.
