    Hi, i'm looking to replace shocks on my '05 columbia with gas shocks, the problem is freightliner dealers i have visited/called don't have them all they have are gabriel oil shocks. Any help would be appreciated. Thx

    Should be able to take em to napa and get the number crossed for some gas shocks. A buddy just got a set for his western star at the Volvo place in Carlisle.

    Call a fleetpride, truck pro, or napa and have them cross reference those gabriel shocks.

    tell them you want to cross them over to the Monroe magnum 65 gas shocks. freightliner should be able to cross the number for you( if they feel like dealing with you).... or call Stengel Brothers out in PA. They can get ya what you need. 1-888-433-3149

    Get OEM part numbers from your dealer.. Then go to this site http://www.monroeheavyduty.com/

    Go to Catalog and click on Interchange button. Enter OEM part number and click search... You will get Monroe part number you need.

    Monroe gas charged all the way. Call any truck steering n axle shop will have them. Gabriel are junk and blow out after 25-50k miles

    Never pay to install shocks it's less than an hr job. Unless someone didn't use anti seize on the bolts when they went thru the metal sleeves on the shocks. Also don't forget your cab shocks they're only good for about a 100,000 m i. Use anti seize and new lock nuts on those bolts
