Monroe Shocks and Struts, a global brand of Tenneco Inc.’s DRiV Motorparts Group, in October announced new part numbers for its new Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies, as well as OESpectrum and Magnum shocks and struts. These new part numbers provide coverage for nearly 2 million vehicles in operation (VIO) in the United States and Canada, the company said.

New to more than 570,000 VIOs, Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies feature special coil springs made from high-grade American SAE steel for durability. Munro says each Quick-Strut assembly also features spacer rods designed to flex up to 15mm without cracking or breaking, helping with better handling and control in the event of a hard impact. These vehicle-specific designs are strength-tested to meet or exceed structural quality standards and durability requirements.

Monroe adds that every Quick-Strut assembly is designed for easy installation; each one is fit-checked to ensure OE-style fitment with mounting locations for easy bolt-on installation. Quick-Strut coverage in the US and Canada is now available for the 2016-2015 Honda CR-V AWD model (#173045 (Front Right) and #173046 (Front Left)).

The Monroe OESpectrum shocks and struts feature a PTFE piston that provides a consistent seal between the piston and the pressure tube, providing better control under most driving conditions, the company says. These shocks and struts deliver consistent performance with full-displacement valving tuned specifically for each vehicle that adapts to changing road conditions.

Monroe OESpectrum shocks and struts also offer reduced noise, vibration and harshness with vehicle-specific technology to provide improved control and isolation of impact-related noise and vibration in most driving conditions. Monroe OESpectrum Premium Struts are now available for the 2015-2014 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan (Part #73120 (Front Right) and #73121 (Front Left)); and 2022-2019 Ram 1500 4WD (New Body Style) (#73117, front). Monroe OESpectrum Passenger Car Shocks are now also available for the 2022-2019 Nissan Altima FWD (#5565).

The Monroe Magnum product line, which Monroe says is designed to meet the demands of today’s high-mileage, heavy-duty commercial vehicles, features large-diameter gas-charged shocks. They provide the consistent control needed for the challenging conditions and suspension movements of grade 6-8 trucks and school buses. Magnum shocks are new this month for the 2022-2017 International LT625, 2020-2017 International LoneStar, 2020-2017 International ProStar and 2019-2018 International RH613 (#65549, rear).

“At Monroe, we’re always expanding our product offerings to help our customers stay on top of our new service category capabilities so they can offer their customers the best selection possible,” said Joe Robinson, Monroe Brand Director. “We make it our mission to design products that are not only durable, but also easy for technicians to install, making our products the easy choice.”
