Default Monroe shock rebate @ Rockauto, Buy 4, Get 1 Free

If you are planning to buy a set of Monroe or Rancho shocks and struts soon, now is the time. Monroe is offering a buy 4 get the cost of one back as a rebate deal thru Oct 31. It's good on Reflex, SensaTrac, Gas Magnum, Rancho, and Rancho lift shocks. The rebate form is on RockAuto.com; just click on the promotions and rebates button.



The Rancho's for the front, part #RS5757 are available. You need to look at 2005 Dakota menu and you can see the front struts are available, with the rebate. I remembered when I ordered mine that I had to order it from the 2005 menu.

FYI
Front Rancho Strut part # RS5757.
Rear Rancho shock absorber part # RS5315. (Don't know the Monroe part #'s.)

Might want to double check the wording. or call before placing an order. It does not appear that the deal works with Rancho Struts which are needed on the front end. But does apply with the Monroe shocks or strut combination.

Yeah, the Rancho struts for the fronts (RS5757) on our Dakotas are not available from Rockauto. Makes a lot of sense, huh?

But if you're going with Monroe, not a bad deal.

EDIT:
The Rancho's for the front, part #RS5757 are available. You need to look at 2005 Dakota menu and you can see the front struts are available, with the rebate.

honestly the shocks in the back really made no difference in the ride of my truck. I replaced them because they were the cheaper of the two (my truck only has 50k miles, so I don't know if they even needed to be replaced, but did anyway...lol). It's the fronts that need to be replaced and I can tell that because there is one bridge I have to cross over every day coming home from work and if I'm not in the correct lane when I hit the end of the bridge, my truck will porpoise for like a 1/4 mile after I hit it (going 70 mph), sometimes it almost takes the wheel from my hand if I'm not holding on, so I know there is something weak up there....maybe I need a General Lee instead...lol

I definitely needed the front struts, the bounce was dangerous at times. I figured to get the rear shocks at the same time, probably didn't need them, but got em anyway.

If 2 of you guys need the front struts, pair up and order 4 front struts for a good deal. Or streetsideauto.c0m has the fronts for $103 a piece, thats where I got mine (using 2005 dakota menu) from with free shipping.
