Default Are your Monroe'* Black?

I just picked up the MA822'* at Advance Auto. They matched Rock Auto'* price with shipping. The pictures I saw showed the shocks were white, but these are black. The part number is correct on the box. I guess I'll just have to make sure they look the same before I take the old ones off.
