    edelbrocks are very expensive
    alot of guys on here have gone with the monroe coilovers in the back of their suburbans, it will help with sag as well. the monroe coilovers are very reasonable at oreillys, they are $100 for the two (they come in a twin pack) also the monroe for the front at anywhere from 23-45 apiece depending on what you want. I will be going with the monroes this summer when I replace them.

    I went with Rancho RS9000XL adjustables a few years back to be able to adjust the rebound when towing.

    Have been able to soften them up in the winter (crappy roads) and stiffen them in the warmer months. I like the adjustability and have adjustable Konis on most of my other cars (street and track).

    Besides the suggest of checking your ball joints & tie-rod ends, check the upper & lower control arm bushings along with the front & rear sway bar bushings. if it's a 2x4, check the center-link, pitman arm & idler arm. And don't forget the rack & pinion have both inner & outer tie-rod ends.

    Matter of fact, if you haven't touched your suspension for 161K, you need to check out the entire suspension system. I'd be greatly surprised if you can get by with only shocks. Your suspension system is one of the most important systems on the vehicle. It affects tire wear, steering and tracking. If something goes wrong with the suspension on a top-heavy vehicle, you could be looking at a roll-over.

    Also don't overlook the steering box, mine is bad and shakes the hell out of the front end when I hit a bump.
