I need new shocks.Everything that I have heard is Bilstein 5100's is the way to go.I have a bone stock Chevy HD 2500 6.6 Duramax,no lift.I really would like a better ride if possible.Who has the best price,that is if you guys say Bilsteins is the way to go.
I just put some rancho 5000s on my truck. They seem to ride better than the stock shocks. Time will tell. They have a respectable name so I chose them because they were about 1/2 the price of the bilsteins.
I just bought Rancho RS 5000's for a leveled front end and Rancho RS 9000's for a stock rear and I can't believe the diffrence, I had to have it realingned bc the front shocks were sooo worn. I even turned my bars down a bit to get the front back level with the rear. 271 bucks delivered from 4wheel partswharehouse.
We have installed just about everything. If you'd like a great shock that will not break the bank try some Zone Off-Road Nitro Shocks Only $39.95 ea. They work really well and many of our customers have had great reviews. I think that they work well and many customers like them over their Bilstein (which are a great shock). They also come with poly bushings which is another plus.
^Agreed. I run the nitro series and haven't had an issue with them, especially for the price! They're an extremely good value for what you get IMHO. Obviously not as cush as a $700 shock setup, but just over 160 for all four corners you won't catch this guy complaining. Ride quality is better than my stock shocks were.
