Monroe Coverage for Light-Duty and Medium-Duty Trucks Expands

Posted on July 15, 2019

Tenneco Inc. has added 22 part numbers for light-duty and medium-duty trucks to its Monroe brand of shock absorbers, struts and ride control components.

The company says the expansion creates nearly 2.5 million additional vehicle repair opportunities.

Among the latest Monroe parts are 18 additional strut assemblies, including 12 premium Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies covering more than 1.2 million service opportunities. Additional applications now covered by the Monroe Quick-Strut offering are 2011-2014 Ford Edge (front), 2008-2010 Honda Odyssey (front), 2013-2018 Ford C-Max (front), 2004-2006 Pontiac Vibe (rear), 2003-2006 Toyota Matrix (rear), 2007-2012 Hyundai Veracruz (front), 2005-2009 Subaru Outback (rear), and 2004-2006 Infiniti G35 (front) models.

Assembled in Paragould, Ark., Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies feature premium Monroe strut technologies tuned and tested for original-equipment (OE) style ride and handling; vehicle-specific coil spring technology featuring U.S.-grade steel and corresponding OE-equivalent spring design; premium, OE-style upper strut mount and bearing plate; and other high-quality components. Genuine Monroe Quick-Strut units are covered by the brand’s limited lifetime warranty and Feel the Difference Guarantee money-back consumer offer.

Also new to the Monroe offering are three Monroe Magnum rear shocks covering more than 280,000 Ford F250 and F350 Super Duty trucks, model years 2017-2019. Monroe also has introduced a Magnum steering stabilizer for 2008-2010 Ford F350, F450 and F550 Super Duty models. Designed and built to meet the demands of high mileage and severe use, Monroe Magnum shocks are covered by an exclusive 90-day risk-free ride offer.

“As it has for more than 103 years, Monroe is focused on helping drivers remain safe, comfortable and confident behind the wheel through world-class ride control components for virtually all popular vehicle makes and models,” says Joseph Robinson, product management director. “We continue to expand our vehicle coverage to enable more service providers, fleets and other customers to leverage these benefits on a daily basis.”
