shock absorber recomendations 150,000 service suggestions
Any suggestions for replacement shocks on my ex cab 2wd 1500 Silverado LT w/ 5.3 liter? I changed the shocks about 50,000 miles ago w Monroe gas shocks. Tow a 19 ft runabout w/ kids and stuff to local lakes. Running empty most of the time. Also, any preventive steps for a 9 year old truck w/ 150,000 miles? Probably time for radiator and transmission flush. Anything else?

I'd go with Bilsteins or Edlebrock shocks.

I replaced the factory shocks on my 06 with Bilsteins. They give a very good ride. I also started towing my car behind it on a 18ft trailer. No problems. The shocks were about $300 for the set.2006 Chevy Silverado, 5.3L, Z71, Extended Cab. Tow Mule.
