    Default Monroe shocks

    Fitted 4 x Monroe gas shocks last Thursday. The owner of the shockfitters company phoned Monroe suppliers in JHB and he fitted what they have sent him.

    Now I'm floating on the tarr and almost broke my back on the mild offroad track of the Reach for a Dream Challenge this weekend.

    The company said I must bring my vehicle so that they can check.

    It seems as if there is a problem in getting shocks for the 3.5 LWB, because in their book that specify the shocks, it states a shock but between brackets it says excluding the 3.5.

    Lets see what the outcome of this one is.

    I must say I didnt think shocks make much difference but I fitted a set of OME shocks to the Hilux and difference is BIG! Definatey the first thing to upgrade!

    There is no standard Monroe shocks for my Pajero.

    They are running around looking for the right shocks. Amstrong do not list them either. The shocks they fitted is for the 3000, but they do not work for the 3500. Body and chassis is the same

    They took my Vin no and will see what they can fit. I want something special

    Episode 3 will follow..............................

    S&S services in Uitenhage fitted the Monroe shocks. They must now find the right shocks or put my old ones back. Then I will go for Ironman. Already spoke to Robin.
    The Ironman is only R500 more.

    In the end I refitted new Mitshubishi shocks bought from the dealer. No-one else could guarantee that their shocks will work without fitting their coilsprings and even torsionbars.

    Can there such a big difference between the 3000 LWB and the 3.5 LWB

    Default Shocks

    Hi,

    I am new to this forum, still trying to find my way around. Not sure where to start and if i'm allowed to ask my questions here.

    I've got 3.5 lwb Pajero, the blister vendor, old shape yet registered in 2000.

    Being looking to replace shocks.

    Today I was to take the Pajero in top fit OME shocks, tortion bars and coils, but postponed to Monday.

    Could anyone give comment on the choice of shocks please?

    I'm also looking for a place to have my Pajero serviced, i'm not to happy with the agents, does any one know of a place?
