I spent big $ on the bilstiens, but they were a big disapointment. I suppose if you compare them to worn out OEM shocks, they are wonderful. But they were way too soft and have no way to adjust. So I put Monroe Gas Magnums on the front and Rancho 9000 on the rear. The ranchos are great, the Monroes are way better than the Bilstiens, but I could still use a tad more stiffness. Just looking at the gas magnum, you can see it is a way better built shock than the bilstien, with a 5/8 rod vs the bilstiens little 3/8 rod. rockauto.com was by far the cheapest place to buy them. Good luck, Joel
