Timmy mines a 2wd as well and it looks like it has the original shocks, I have 100k miles on the truck. How do the 4600's do for you? My 4x4 had the 5100's and that was just too damn stiff for what Im after

MT...it was a night/day difference. First i had them "pro-comp" ones which blew out in a materr of a week or so. I then threw the stockers back on. I noticed a difference with them over them amateur-comp shocks even before they blew out. Once the steins came in, threw them on, and truck couldn't be happier. Been on for last 60k+ miles and just had them off a few weeks ago, removing the axle, and they still work perfect..no "gaps" in fluid, they compress/rebound like they did new.

I just ordered some Monroe's that I heard a few good things about. They are lifetime and pretty inexpensive. Plus they are doing a deal right now where you can buy 4 for the price of 3 with a rebate. Might be something to check into.
