Installed these on the rear of an Expedition with a 3" lift. At first I thought they were terrible because they seemed to ride like an old worn out Cadillac - way too soft. Thankfully Tech support told me I had installed them upside down! The rubber booted side goes up. They now ride great. They are smooth but controlled. Couldn't be happier.
These shocks make our 1999 Expedition ride and handle like it should. We live in a mountainous area with steep hills and windy curves. The stock shocks didn't cut it. The Monomax shocks deliver the performance I was looking for. The ride is stiffer, but not uncomfortable. I highly recommend these shocks for any truck or SUV that is being used for it's intended purpose.
