Monroe shocks failed

An update to my axle replacement
I used Monroe shocks against my better judgement because they were recommended by a respected restoration person
BIG MISTAKE
They failed after approximately 6 thousand miles
By failed I mean they leaked hydraulic fluid and lost damper effect
I ordered new shocks from Inland RV to replace them, the new shocks are Gabriel and so far I have about 3500 miles on them without any leakage

In post 1966 Airstream trailers that have the shocks mounted more or less horizontally, the first set of shocks failed because they are not supposed to be mounted horizontally.
