I plan on picking up a set of bilsteins in the near future. Most of what ive read say they notice night and day difference. Im not sure what brand my stock ones are but theyve got 100k on them.

I just purchased a set of Bilstein 5100 for my truck, just waiting for my new rear blocks to come in before install. Best word of advice, monotube shocks! better response, better handling, smoother and nicer ride
