New Bilsteins WOWW

Have to say finally replaced my wore out procomp shocks with some Bilstein 7100s and wow what a ride difference. My truck feels like its riding on a cloud now. Anyone looking to upgrade I highly suggest taking a look at them.

Would they make as much of a difference on an 04 leaf sprung 6.0?

I actually got them used off a guy on PSN, they had 10k miles on them and payed $150 for both couldnt complain about that price. I know they run a hefty penny. There valved for the truck and everything, couldnt believe the difference but the truck feels like a caddy now. I drive a washboard dirt road alot and could barely go 5mph down it, now I can go about 30 easily.

Thats a good deal if they are in good shape.

Bilsteins make a HUGE difference over the standard run of the mill shock.
