    Default Shocks for Suburban 2500 Quadrasteer

    I am looking to replace the shocks on my 04 suburban and seem to have few if no options at all.

    The vehicle has quadrasteer and electronic suspension. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have contacted one vendor online that deals with nothing but shocks (muliple brands) and they claim to have nothing that is meant for my vehicle.

    The shocks on my 03 QS were replaced before I got the truck. I'll have a look to see if I can get you a make/model...

    I'll poke around the net too...

    not sure... but wouldn't standard HD shocks work as per usual?

    I don't know much about the QS models.

    I had a quick look, I know mine were replaced by the previous owner, my 2003 has some Orange ACDelco shocks on them, There was a sticker that said A6H on it.

    I'm going to try to cross reference with Napa or some other parts store now, but at first glance they don't appear to be anything special.

    Yeah, that is what I came up with. I do have the part numbers for the shocks and got quotes between 260 and 300 for them, plus shiipping. I was hoping there was a better shock available, that was little known.

    Thanks for the help guys.
