The Monroe shocks and struts brand of Tenneco Inc. has announced the return of the Monroe Shocktober promotion program, including a valuable installer pre-paid debit card promotion and a corresponding consumer mail-in rebate, during the busy fall selling season.

From September 1 through October 31, 2010, automotive service professionals can earn up to $120 in pre-paid debit cards for qualifying sales of Monroe products through the Shocktober promotion.

“This promotion is ideal: premium products, exciting rewards and a busy fall selling season,” said Sheryl Bomia, North America programs manager, Tenneco.

Participants who complete 10, 20 or 30 pairs of qualifying sales during the promotional period can earn pre-paid debit cards of $30, $60 or $90, respectively. There are no limits to the rewards a shop owner, service writer or technician can earn through the promotion. Monroe is also offering a consumer promotion called “Shocktober” that rewards motorists who purchase four qualifying ride control products with a mail-in rebate for the lowest cost unit (up to the current Monroe and/or Rancho suggested list price).

Curing Shock, Strut and Suspension Noise

As vehicles age, eliminating noise is Job 1. But ‘noise’ may mean different things to you and your customers.

Shocks, struts and springs are the connection between sprung and un-sprung parts of the vehicle. The design is simple, with just a piston traveling in a cylinder full of oil to control the travel of the suspension and movement of the body during weight transfer. If the engineer gets it right, the valves in the piston and base of the shock or strut will be able to keep the tires in contact with the road and the body level under a wide variety of conditions. Unfortunately, the suspension can be damaged, and the shocks and struts will degrade. This can lead to handling issues and noise problems.

Pricing Alignments

Why ordering off the menu can hurt your shop and customers.

Toe Angles and Ride Height 

Zero toe angle is present when both tires are parallel to the center thrustline.

High-End Ride Control Rehab

Electronically adjustable shocks and struts use conventional mono-tube and twin-tube oil-filled dampeners.

Toe Angles and Tie Rods

It is critical to remember that toe is not always zero or straight ahead.
