    Unhappy Broken Monroe Air Shock

    I installed Monroe DIY system and it works great. It has worked great for months. I just experienced a broken shock. The right side shock is broken at the top mount. The mount has broken off from the shock. Within a month of replacing the broken shock with a new Monroe shock, the shock on the left side broke the same way. Anyone else have this happen to them? Not sure what would cause the shock to break, a possible bad batch??

    Can't remember where but I have seen something about this happening to others that have used the monroe shocks. There maybe a thread on here somewhere if you do a search.

    I had mine welded all around the mount. Before installing them. If you look at all the companies that make them thats what they do.

    I didn't know Monroe made shocks for Harleys. Obviously there is an issue with the welds but how are they compared to Progressive?
