    I got the Bilsteins installed today. it went pretty smoothly only took a couple hours. helps when u got the right tools. anyways i went driving around after getting them on and i could tell right away the improvement of the ride. night and day difference. i couldn't be happier with the Bilsteins. Will know more with more miles put on but as of right now they are worth the money. I love 'em!

    Depending on which one you get (the Bilstein HD's or the 5100's), they vary in price from $70-$80 a piece.

    I paid $450 shipped for my set from Southern Truck Performance. Mine were 5100 struts up front and 5100 shocks in the rear.

    Chevyman2004, don't forget to retighten the shocks after about 500 miles. Also Alston that sounds like a good price for all four shipped.

    I put a set on my 1998 Suburban 4 years ago when I bought it.They completely removed the extreme sway I would get when going around any sort of high speed turn- like an on ramp or such.Feels like a gigantic sports car now(just kidding but it is much safer handling when I have to make abrupt steering inputs)
