    I just got some monroe shocks and they seem to be a fair amount different than standard on my POS focus. standard rear shocks look similar to this:

    with this cap on the top on the inside of the car:

    these are the monroe shocks i just got:

    it came with those bushings and washers, where as stock had nothing (all an assembly with the cap inside the car). is it safe to assume it goes

    nut
    washer
    bushing
    car
    bushing
    washer
    shock


    and leaf of the stock rubber cap + washers inside the car? anyone know? :hsughno:

    The upper shock mount does not come with the shock. You need to remove it from your old one and install the way they have it. As for the bushing order, I believe you have it right but it should have come with instructions inside the box..

    called Monroe, dude said these shocks are a recent redesign. none of the OEM parts are retained and the shit slaps together with just the hardware included
