    I like my set of monroe reflex, they also make the sensatrac with a little better ride

    I recently went with KYB Monomax shocks. They are a bit firm but lets be honest we drive trucks not Cadillacs.

    I'll also vouch for Bilstein shocks. They were stock on Z-71 optioned trucks, but can be fitted to any of the C/K series.


    Great deals @ www.eshocks.com That's where I got mine.. $268 shipped for all 4 shocks.
    My lug nuts require more torque than your Honda makes.

    i had KYB on mine for a very short time. these were way to rough for me. i did not like the feeling so i got rid of them. and bought my cadillac like shocks. the ride is smooth and when you spend more than 4 hours in it a day you tend to want a smooth ride
