Shock Absorbers

Gonna get some Monroe Gas Magnum Shocks tomorrow from Oreilley's
is this a good brand since it is gas charged or is there a way better alternative for around the same money? i'm gettin them for around $120.00

Secondly, are they easy to replace, from looking at my truck it seems fairly straitforward and looks like it'll only take 45 min.
Any advice the Pro's can give?

I'm guessing these shocks will drastically improve my trucks ride. if i go over bumps it normally rattles and hits it hard and rough.

For the money, they are a good shock.

You might wanna look at: RockAuto Auto Parts - Just looked for shocks on a 1996 F350. They have Monroe and other shocks. With their prices and shipping, you'd have to see which would save you $$. The difference is you'd have to wait for Brown to bring 'em to your house.

Just a suggestion.

I ran monroe shocks and other parts store shocks for years on trucks and thought they were great. Then I bought my first set of good after market shocks and its a whole other level of ride. My personal preferance is Bilsteins, but there are plenty of others, and if you have time to wait you can get good aftermarket shocks for not alot more than parts store brand.
Jim

never mind just saw that you were getting em for $120. Is that for all 4?
