    Default Shock absorbers? Which is best?

    I own a 07 siverado Z71 Crew Cab and I want to replace my shock absorbers. I travel on very rough roads and I want a high quality heavy duty shock. Any recommendations? Thanks.

    I've used Monroe shocks w/good luck. Also, Bilstien makes great HD shocks.

    Upgrading a vehicles shocks will give it a smoother ride quality over bumps and stuff correct?
