2001 2wd Shocks??

Ok. Time to replace the worn out shocks on my 2wd ex.

I read alot about Bilstiens on this site, but think that most trucks running them are 4wd.

Any advice on what to use on the 2wd?

Thanks

Ex

I just put rancho's on the front of mine (4x4 tho) and really like them, I ran monroe's before and liked them too.

My 02 is 2wd, I put Bilstiens on it and it can be jarring simply because its a beast and the front suspension will hit the stops on larger impacts. I also have some very stiff walled E rated tires on it. On a decent highway the ride is still nice and caddy like. I would recommend them but YMMV.

What's YMMV? I'm in need of new shocks for my truck in my sig, still has the originals when I bought it (100k miles) just a few months ago.
