    I recently obtained a 94 k1500, its a great truck and ive been fixing it up. It needed shocks because the old ones were leaking and i was having huge bounce problems. While it rides better it still needs way more dampening, the new shocks still allow too much of a boat feel for my taste. Anyone recommend some better shocks? Currently they are Delcos

    Some of the Shocks to look at are.....Bilstein.....Edelbrock name a few....I have the Edelbrock IAS shocks...I could not be any more pleased with the Ride I get from them.

    Rancho is what I run, The RS9000's are adjustable dampening.

    I got some BS shocks on my truck right now. I actually think they're blowen. Anyone know who makes the stiffest shocks? Bilstein or KYB or Pro Comp or Rancho?

    x2 on the Rancho RS9000 XL. I just installed them a few weeks ago and already took them off-roading several times. I am very happy with them...

    My cousin runs Monroe SensTracs in his Cherokee which I have driven and they ride nice. Gonna pick me up a set soon as well.

    I have Bilsteins on the front of my 'burb, and on the rear of my s-10....They transformed my suburban, it was a drastic difference. Of course the ones that came off were completely toast. They are really stiff in the rear of my s10 though.

    What about Gabriels? I'm pretty sure that's what my suburban has on it now, and what I can get locally for lift shocks.
