The Bilsteins 5100s will ride stiffer than stock. Personally, I will not put them on my truck as I don't want it to ride anymore truck like than it already does. But that's MHO.

My truck came with Ranchos and to be honest it rides much, much smoother than I thought it would.

I put the Bilstein 5100's on my 2003 Silverado and I love them. I had the Monroe reflex shocks on and huge improvement. Limited body roll and the truck is more smoother on the highways. I would recommend them to anyone!Objects in mirror are losing

A buddy of mine would be all over you as he insists that shock absorber is the improper term and we should all call them a "damper". I tell him, this is the US, not England.

sounds about right. I think I paid around 87 each when I put them on.David

Shot in the dark question...I'm going to replace shocks in the near future on our '96 suburban (k1500). Stock suspension, no lift or anything. I'm comparing KYB #565062 and Bilstein #24-104050. Anyone have experience with either of these? I know Bilsteins are good, but are they really 50% better than the KYBs as reflected by the price difference? I've used KYBs in other applications and have been happy with them. Thanks.
