I am interested in hearing some opinions on shock absorbers after reading a comment from a fellow member who has coil over shocks. I am running Gabriel ProGuards front and rear. I just put the rears on about 1 month ago and haven't had the chance to test them out very well, I only got to drive up and down my street. But when I did a 90 degree turn at about 25-35 MPH it didn't seem to have as much lean which I like and of course the rear end felt nice and stiff. But I want to hear some opinions maybe I can try something else out. I was thinking of the Gabriel Load Shocks but I don't want the ride to be too stiff like a brick and spending like 350 bucks for shocks every replacement isn't friendly on the wallet.

Bilstine is expensive, but you get what you pay for?

Monroe HD Gas-matics ride really nice in a 3/4 ton van. Ive had 2 sets on different vans and they have a lifetime warranty.

My 4x4 has Rough Country shocks and let me tell you, the name delivers. Rides like crap! Will be changing them out real soon. You totally get what you pay for when you buy shocks and its all personal preference and application.

Yea I hear that often about rough country. I had Monroes and they ride like a cadillac.
