    :usa: I am looking for the Monroe sensatrac load levelers. Where is the best place to purchase these. I tried Murrays where I normally get my parts and they wanted $70 a piece! I have seen them on line for about $100 for the pair.
    Also, has anyone installed these? Do you need a spring compressor to do this?
    Thanks fo any input!

    I did see that write up. But, the ones I am looking to get have a spring built into them to help with a load or trailoring. So, they are different.

    for that kind of money I would just get rancho RS9000s. Much better shock IMO.

    Capt...I installed the load levelers in the rear...a major pain without the spring compressor. I can try to help you thru the install, so if you need it PM me. Now my records are shakey but I seem to remember that I got them here:

    http://www.pickproparts.com/.

    I know I posted the price I paid for them in an earlier thread and I'm pretty sure it was a lot less than you're talking (I seem to remember $45-50 ea. but once again I'm shakey on this). I know if you do a search and maybe refine it with replies from me you may find the thread I'm talking about. I will try and look for it too and I'll post it here if I can find it.
