Monroe shocks blown after a month or 2?

Hello all,
So I got some monroe gas matics back in march and finally installed them in late april. The ride was rather "floaty" like I was driving a boat. But recently I noticed it got worse and worse until I stopped one day and the whole front end went down. I stood on the rocker and bounced and it went up and down about 4 times. (and I'm not a heavy girl lol just 140 lbs) Normal shocks shouldn't bounce more than twice.
Has anyone else had a bad experience with these shocks? I haven't even taken it off roading yet this year and wont until i get better replacements. I got them from advance so hopefully they will warranty them and ill get the sensa tracs..

It's not uncommon to have a bad batch of shocks come out from time to time. Get them replaced.
