    Default 2008 silverado new shocks question!!!!!

    hello,
    i have a 2008 crew cab silverado with 4.8 and 3.73 gears and 30k miles. i towed a 4000lb boat last week and wasn't happy with rear shocks. looking at a few replacements and wanted some opinions. i tow one 600 mile trip a summer with that boat and a few short trips. i occasionally haul but it just depends.

    here they are:
    -bilstein hd
    -kyb gas-a-just
    -kyb gr-2
    -monroe reflex
    please let me know what you all think.
    thanks...

    little sag probabaly due to leaf springs not being HD. a little bounce with trailer. also get some bed bounce un-loaded. just looking for a better aftermarker shock than the ones that are on there.
