Hi Guys,

I have replaced my rear shocks with the MONROE 822's. Everything went well except the air line. I could not install the air line into the new shock. It seems that the hole in the new shock is too small for the air line. What am I missing? I tried to pull the old air line out to see if I'm missing something but I could not do it. I had to cut the old air line to remove the shock.

Is there a rubber cone or something that inserts into the new air shock?

Thanks,

--------------------------
the original air line fitting plugs directly onto the Monroe replacement shock -

if you cut something it is screwed up -

Monroe makes a manual-fill kit - AK29 that has the correct ends -

the kit is around $12 -
