“Shocktober is a fun and rewarding way to focus on the safety-critical role of your shocks and struts,” said Sheryl Bomia, programs manager, North America Aftermarket, Tenneco. “Fall is a great time to take care of important repairs, and this promotion helps educate consumers about the importance of replacing worn components that could be affecting their vehicles’ ride and handling characteristics.”

Shocks and struts play important roles in safe driving by helping deliver satisfactory steering, stopping and stability. Their damping action helps maintain movement of the vehicle’s suspension within safe limits. This, in turn, helps the brakes do their job by maintaining tire traction and distributing the vehicle’s weight across all four wheels. Shocks and struts also limit the transfer of vehicle weight from front to back when braking, and from side to side around turns. In addition, properly functioning shocks and struts help protect tires from abnormal wear.

The Shocktober offer is available on qualifying Monroe OESpectrum®, Sensa-Trac® and Reflex® shocks, struts and cartridges; Max-Air® and Gas-Magnum® shocks; Monroe Load Adjusting shocks; Monroe Quick-Strut® replacement assemblies; and Rancho RS5000® shocks.

Monroe Shocktober rebate submission forms are available through participating automotive parts and service providers and online at Rebate does not cover installation/labor costs. All submissions must be postmarked by Dec. 1, 2014. Other restrictions apply.
