Opinions on Monroe Load Levelers

I'm thinking about getting a set of Monroe Load levers for my Commander. Looking at these for more of softer less rigid ride. What are some opinions and what is the normal cost for these?

I bought some and never ended up installing them. I heard good things from several people on this forum though. They are usually around $100 dollars depending on where you look. I have a new set for sale if you end up wanting to get some.

You're looking in the wrong place. Anything that adds load capacity is going to stiffen the ride.

Definitely stiffens the ride. But, are well worth it.

I have the Rusty's 2" lift rear shock now and the rear is getting a loud bang when hitting larger bumps. Its almost as if the jeep is bottom out on the bump stop.

Check to make sure your springs aren't upside down.... Mine were and had the same problem

Would you happen to have a pic of what the spring should look like? I cant find a pic anywhere.

They really look the same exact way there's no indication of up and down on stock springs so a pic wouldn't do justice but make sure the top of the spring is flush against the spacer..... I actually had to rotate one of my springs so the top of the spring was easily flush on the spacer or bump stop or what have you lol I can get you a picture of what I'm talking about but your gonna hVe to wait until tomorrow

The sound your hearing almost sounds like taking a sledge and hitting the bottom of the truck when you hit a bump the certain way right???

It sounds exactly like that. I can wait for the pics, no real rush. In the meantime, I'll check the seating of the springs.
