    Default Monroe Gas Magnum?

    Just wondering if anyone is using the monroe gas magnum shocks.

    i need something robust and somewhat inexpensive -- ride is not a real consideration. I did call monroe, and they said that they are a premium low pressure gas shock with a "firm but not harsh" valving.

    mostly i'm concerned with controlling wheel hop while plowing and absorbing chuck holes out in the pasture.

    I had them on an old Ford I used to have (my first truck). This was years ago (decades) but they are still the same I understand. I really liked them. Yeah, the back jumped around unloaded, but that's a pickup thing. Good shocks. I overloaded the truck so bad several times and they always held it steady.
