    Default Need new shocks

    Well, today I was under the truck and I looked up and saw fluid coming from the bottom of my driver side shock. I figure I need to replace all the shocks because as far as I know, they've never been replaced.

    I just need some reviews. I would like to get Bilsteins, but the truck has 171K on it, and soon or later I'm gonna be getting a new truck. So, what about Gabriel shocks? If I can afford the Bilsteins, I'll go with them, but the Gabriel's prices are looking really good.

    I have the Bilsteins on my Tahoe! They are NICE! I think if you are going to get a new truck, the Gabriel shocks should be fine. Then you can put the Bilsteins on your new truck when you need to. Hope this helps!

    That's what I was thinking. Thanks for the reply.

    Ya Blisteins are awesome. Id also like someone to try Edelbrock's truck shocks to see how good they are.
