I like Bilsteins (so another vote for them). Give Cary a call at CT Performance. Cheers!

I put new bilsteins on my truck and in doing that found it had newer kyb shocks on it teh previous owner had put on. It now rides considerably better with the bilsteins.

I put Rancho RS5000 shocks all the way around my D60 and overall the truck rides much better now than I expected. I have Bilsteins on my 01 SD that are nice, though I did have to replace one after a failure with about 7500 miles miles on them.
