    ok so my front shocks are leaking and i need to replace. I don't do a lot of offroading more of a daily driver. What is a good one? never replaced shocks before so i don't know what to buy. i have leveling kit so i don't know if that makes a difference. Should i replace just the two or all four? any help is much appreciated. also would like to spend about $50 a piece for them. Will do the work myself with a little help from brother-in-law.

    Best to do them all at once IMO. Monroe is a decent priced shock, same with Pro Comp. I don't think that the leveling kit will affect the height you will need.
  3. Bilsteins are alittle more than $50.00 each but there worth it. Also check out Edelbrocks.

    The bilsteins are great but over 50 each. I have used Monroes in the past with good results. the procomp ES9000's run about 40 each and I didnt see a problem with them. I havent used Edelbrocks but they are a reputable company.

    I got four new Bilsteins on ebay for $220 delivered-that was 3.5 years ago.
    No complaints they work well Suburban doesn't have all the sway and bobbing it had before.

    If not Bilstein's then KYB's are the only way I would go for Aftermarket

    where is the best place to find bilsteins? at a decent price?
  8., there a porsche shop/parts and they have good prices on most of there parts. If they don't stock they can get in a short amount of time. I purchased EBC brakes, Weathertech matts, Covercraft seatcovers and the savings was worth the wait ( about a week). They also have differant specials including shipping specials. There upfront with you if they don't have in stock and how long to ship.

    yeah thats a good price. that seemed to be around the prices I could find when shopping online and local stores. I think mine for my lifted truck were about 80 for the rears and 85 for the front. check even check Kragen (now orielly) which is where I got mine. 4wheelparts werent anymore expensive. they all seemed to be within a couple dollars of each other.

    I would look into Pro Comp Series Shocks... Good in price for a great ride on and off the road. Good Luck to you, man... Check out Usually prices aren't to bad.
