NEED NEW SHOCKS

Well my truck has 111,000 miles on her and i need to put some new shocks on her. I was just going to go to napa and get some shocks from them but i figured i would see what other people have done. So if anyone has any good shocks to let me know about tell me.

Doesn't anybody use the search engine, or at least look for a identical thread? I just posted to the same topic in the thread above this one. Here you go.

I have run Bils and Ranchos and both are way to stiff for highway use. The best shock I have found is the Monroe Reflex. Great ride without the bling and you can buy all four for the price of one Bil and lifetime warranty. Many have used the Reflex and will agree with me. And yes I got them at Napa!!!

I agree with the monroe I got mine from big o like a decade ago and they still ride really nice. I run 35s too, My pops has bilsteins on his new dodge and they are stiff as hell like bad stiff lol. Mine have a lifetime warrenty too, I wheel, I tow, I live in a really rough roaded area and these still give me a smooth ride every day

I jsut went and bought the Monroe Reflex shocks. Putting them on this weekend. Also NAPA shocks is what we used on my buddies yota rockcrawler and they work great for that but it is also a hell of alot lighter.

Yeah the weight plays a really big part in the valving of shocks, lol my pops dodge weighs in at just a tad over 9k so he told the shop valve them stiff as theyll get and he totally regrets it lol, never listens to me about that stuff till after he learns his lesson lol
