Monroe or Koni shocks for Defender?
Posted 05 February 2010 - 07:41 AM
I have a Landrover Defender Td5 110 CSW (2005) and am looking for new shocks. My driving is likely to be 85-90% on paved roads, but heavily or quite heavily loaded. My choice seems to come down to partly on account of whats available- Koni Heavy Tracks or Monroe Gas Magnum/Gas Magnum TDT.
Which ones might be best?

I've not had any problems with them.

What's wrong with the standard Land Rover shocks
Nothing that a good gas shock can't fix!

I changed from original LR oil filled shocks and fitted Monroe gas on my Discovery (standard height) and (imho)they are undoubtedly a much better drive both cornering and the up and down bit!! Very pleased...... if that helps. Easy on the pocket too!!

Can anyone compare new LR with new aftermarket?
Yes, in my opinion, decent gas shocks are noticeably better, both on road and off.
Also, before anyone says that Land Rover spend millions of pounds, thousands of hours and miles testing their products, they also build products to a budget.
