    Gonna replace cab shock absorbers soon. Who makes the best shock absorber? Monroe, Gabriel, OEM, other?

    I like Monroe, Gabriel is probably fine, too. OEM is usually cheapest bidder stuff.

    Monroe or Gabriel. They make most of the OEM stuff anyways.

    I've always found Gabriel to be harsh and they just don't last.

    Monroe for me.

    I installed Gabriel FleetLine with new front tires michelin xline (load range H) on my truck Freighliner Cascadia 2014. 244 wheelbase. 500 hp. 13300 lb front axle. 3.08 axle ratio. But Very cheap shock absorbers. I do not know how they will work on the truck. I'll tell you later

    I installed Monroe shocks on my suspension and cab this week. The old shocks weren't working at all. The ride has to be better :)
