Tenneco unveils new shock absorber line

Feb. 19, 2018
Learn about Tenneco's Monroe Magnum shock absorbers, engineered to help fleets and other users reduce costs.

Tenneco will introduce a new line of US-manufactured gas-charged shock absorbers as its main product offering for the North American commercial vehicle market.

The new, all-black Monroe Magnum shock absorbers  are engineered to help fleets and other users reduce cost per mile through durability, improved vehicle control and increased driver comfort and satisfaction. They will be commercially available beginning April 1, 2018.

Monroe Magnum shock absorbers will combine a range of advanced design and construction features engineered to address the increased demands of over-the-road tractors and trailers, as well as other severe-use vehicles. Each shock will be covered by the Monroe brand’s exclusive 90-day risk-free ride offer and technical and product application support.

Key quality and performance designs featured in Magnum shocks include a large-diameter nitrocarburized rod that provides improved compression control and side-load strength; PTFE-coated rod guide bearing that increases durability by minimizing friction between the rod and rod guide; robust hydraulic lock-out design that helps prevent overextension of the suspension; larger-diameter piston to provide greater tuning precision for each vehicle application; and Tenneco’s latest, advanced shouldered bushing design, where applicable, which helps prevent bushing extrusion and related concerns.

New Monroe Magnum shocks also offer twice the pressure-tube thickness of other commercial vehicle shocks. Increased pressure tube thickness reduces the chances of shock damage in extreme load and road conditions.
