Rear right shock absorber keeps blowing

Hi,

I've replaced my mom's Mazda 3 GT Sedan's (2.3 L) right rear shock absorber twice in the last couple of months. The last time I installed it the shock absorber only lasted about a week. I'm wondering if the issue is being caused by something else?

The shock absorbers I used were Monroe OESpectrum, part #5607.

Thanks in advance

Its highly unlikely that its anything other than a lot of defective shocks unless she drives like a maniac. Personally, I like KYB better.

Agreed. Monroe isn't going to get you too far.

Sent from the wrong side of the tracks.

Thanks for the responses.
I will purchase a pair of KYB shocks for the rear and hopefully I wont need to reinstall another shock for a while.

Thanks again!
