Ive been looking to replace my shocks, I can tell they need it. What is everyone running?

I was thinking about getting the Gabriel 77359 MAX CONTROL Monotube Shock Absorber http://a.co/5hFGQ7u any thoughts?

I was also thinking about adding a steering dampener kit, has anyone done this to there van? Its a MOOG SSD44 Kit http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=204638&cc=1073922&jsn=452&jsn=452


Take Care,
Kevin

Yes Kevin, you will like having stabilizers on your ride. I have dual stabilizers on both of my vans.

The '92 has Monroe & the '93 has Rancho. If PBucket wasnt being an azz I would post pic's of them.

Definitely put a set on your ride youll like the extra steering control. It helps you not over correct.

I just wish there was a way to make it so the turning ratio on a dodge better. You cant do a U-Turn at a light with 2 lanes, its ridiculous! And pulling a trailer and trying to turn around is the worst.


Take Care,
Kevin

Pretty sure all GM's have the best turning ratio, even on their trucks.


Take Care,
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Van's coming along, good job!
I'm running Bilstiens on both the 1 tons, and KYB on the B250. Pretty satisfied with the Bilstiens. I ran them on everything I towed with.

A must have IMO, plus good tires, when yer skidding sideways down the fast lane, watching the cars behind you swerving in the lanes trying to figure out what to do...

The KYBs ride softer, and I sure could stand a little more dampening on impact, especifically in the front. Old B250 stock springs prolaby don't help.

Frscke1 has the best dampening setup I've seen.

I'd definitely go Bilstiens If I got a do over.
Good hunting!

I love Bilsteins; I run them on my 1980 Plymouth Arrow pickup (which has a 360/904/ narrowed 8.75 combo in it) Expensive, but I think worth it.
