The Monroe® Sensa-Trac® load adjusting shock absorber with PSD (position sensitive damping) and the Safe Tech™ system combines our exclusive precision tapered grooves in the pressure tube with application engineered valving and Fluon banded piston to improve the ride, handling, and safety characteristics of the vehicle.
These units also include a heavy gauge calibrated spring for extra control and comfort. A new pair of Monroe Sensa-Trac load adjusting shock absorbers can assist in maintaining ride height when up to 1,200 lbs*. of additional weight is loaded. These units are ideal for light trucks that carry varying loads or tow trailers.My trucks!

We loaded up for a trip and then 3 guys sat on the rear and it went down maybe inch or less, and it doesn't ride rough another thing I was wanting in a shock.

I do like Bilstien a little pricey though, but I do want the extra spring in the back for support, thanks for the info Dr. Zero.
