PRO COMP SHOCKS/DUAL STEERING STABILIZER

Ladies/Gents...

Anyone running the Pro-Comp Pro Runner Shocks or Dual Steering Stabilizer? Go/No-Go???? Can't seem to find much info on them but all the stores I am calling seem to compare them to the Bilstien 5100's. Looking at ordering the four shocks and a dual steering stabilizer. $680 or so for all Bilstien stuff from Top Gun Customz or $480 for all Pro-Comp Pro Runner from Summit... Thoughts?

pro-comp are made by Tennecco and labeled pro-comp.. Tennecco makes a ton of shocks for various brands- some highish end, mostly entry level shocks..

Bilstiens are regarded like they are for a good reason- they are very good shocks..

buying the pro-comps, if they are the white bodied ones, they are definitely made by tennecco, and they are the same shock you can buy for $30 under one label, or pay $70 under another.. If they are the silver bodied shocks, they still may be made by tennecco, but you may have entered the mid-grade quality level.

you can't go wrong with the billy's.. you're taking minor risk buying the pro-comps.. they are just a branding, they don't actually make 'em..

you're one of my Marine brothers in arms, and you're local (well, you're truck anyway)..

If you would like, I can point you toward a couple fella's I know well who are also Marines, who run a tight little shop just outside of Richlands, and can likely match any price you find on parts/pieces/install...

here... ask for JohnC.. tell em' Drew sent you.. you'll not find a more honest bunch of dudes, who are absolutely competent..

I remember those days, bro... I got out a lifetime ago, it seems.. The two dudes who run that shop are GS and contractor types now too, but retired Marines.. they've been there, as well..

keep your powder dry and your head low.. I've got a few cold ones waiting for ya when you get back.

I've got the pro comp dual steering stabilizer kit on my truck and love it. I can't speak for the suspension though but I wouldn't be afraid to run the pro comp steering stabilizer kit with tires 35" or less and a lift no higher than 6".
