Ugh, Monroe's ride like you welded the rod to the cylinder, avoid them at all
costs (and they are valved like American shocks, too). Had a pair on the rear
of my 280, replaced them with a set of Bilsteins from a '65 out of the junk
yard. Vastly better.
Hold out for the real ones, aftermarket will be worse than what is on there.
