Cool I was just wondering. I read something on another forum recently about Monroe shocks having longevity issues.

All Monroe shocks have a 2 year warranty. Call 1800 069 999 and see what they say.

The reason few people are agreeable in conversation is that each is thinking more about what he intends to say than what the others are saying and we never listen when we are eager to speak.

Smile shocks

My mistake, turns out the bottom mounting bolt tends to loosen and make a clunking sound and as the monroe guy said it must be done up "super tight" did that and theres no noise now (it was only a quarter turn)

may be worth dipping the thread in some lock-tight (loctite?) or similar

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Yes, i had the same problem, except the previous owner didn't maintain it properly. I had to put new shockers on the rear, now nor worries. Just now have to replace the Rubbers in the front and leafs in the back.
