1998 MPV All Sport. 127k miles

New MPV owner with bad factory shocks so replaced them with Monroe part # MA 818 air shocks. Easy to install just feel the rear is a tad bouncy. Have it at 100lbs and it sits level. 100lbs to low? Not sure I like the bounce it has.
Thanks Guys

hey

i owned the 818's about three years ago. never had a bouncy ride on them at all. i always bumped them up a little higher than level as i never used them via compressor.

cool stuff

but keep in mind that those monroes are not designed to have the air in them 24/7. they will crap out on you within months if you dont deflate. i had them and they only lasted 6 months before they died. Are you still using the oem compressor or did you ditch it and are just manually filling up the shocks?
