Monroe® Launches New OESpectrum® Shock and Mount Assembly for Popular Vehicle Applications

February 08, 2023

NORTHVILLE, Mich., Feb. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Monroe® shocks and struts, a leading global brand from Tenneco's DRiV group, recently introduced its newest innovation: an OESpectrum® shock and mount assembly designed to simplify the installation process to save technicians time in the repair bay. This new preassembled part comes in one complete package, eliminating the need for special tools and potential damage to other parts during the removal process.

The OESpectrum shock and mount assembly was created to provide a quick, easy, and simplified installation, backed by Monroe quality and durability. Featuring premium preassembled aluminum upper mount, shock, compression bumper, and dirt shield, this all-in-one solution offers everything needed for a complete repair. Each shock and mount assembly provides technicians with an aftermarket replacement that matches OE design, in addition to premium valving technology to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness. The PTFE-banded piston ensures consistent sealing for better control and increased durability. With the Monroe OESpectrum shock and mount assembly, handling is also improved, as full displaced valving, tuned specifically to each vehicle, adjusts to extreme road conditions, while the larger bore provides more efficient damping control for greater consistency.

Monroe's latest offering is now available for some of the most popular vehicles in operation today:
