Thumbs up Monroe Sensa-Trac Shocks

I recently replaced the shocks on my stock 2000 Ranger. I ordered them from O'reillys and went with the load adjustable for the rear. All four went on in about 1.5 hrs. Much better now they ride rougher but it doesn't bother me.
The front went on quickly, the rear have the coil over design and needed the floor jack to persuade them into place.
Overall there's a huge difference now better handling, almost zero nose dive, and with the boat hooked there's no squat at all.
Good product.

The rears are way to stiff for my taste. But again they are made for towing and stuff with the coilover design. Good shocks for what they are designed for!

Default i concur - monroe sensatracs are a good buy

i did the same thing with my 98 2wd super cab. load levelers in the rear and sensa's up front. lol - it rides like a truck now - before it was on marsh-mellows.
