    Thumbs up shocks

    The Edelbrocks are nice. Have dual remotes reservors on my lifted 05 1500 crewcab. Installed on customers non-lifted trucks and they also liked em. They used to have a 30day trile period to try them, if you didnt like return em. Im not sure if they still have the trial period warranty.

    Bilstein maks some good shocks. If on road comfort is what you are looking for, most will do just fine.

    I am glad to hear that they have a good ride, I have a brand new set of four still in the boxes for my 2001 S-10. The reason I bought mine was because they were the only aftermarket shocks that were vehicle specific, and I don't like to use universal stuff because of bad past experiences with things. I also got a good deal at Summit Racing during one of there shows, I got them for $80 a piece when they are normally $100 each! I am looking forward to putting them on this summer, thanks for posting this thread.........AMY
