billstiens are just an awesome preforming shock all around. Smoothness on the road, and offroad. They are dual valved, for anti-foaming for longer life also. Ive been running them on my truck for a while now, and you can definately tell a difference.

never had bilsteins, but when i changed from stock to OME i noticed a positive change...much better.

my assumption though is that both the billys and the nitrochargers work just as well...its just a preference thing (correct me if i am wrong)

If you're just going to drive it on the street and don't feeling like paying that much for shocks then get Monroes.

This is what I ran for years before I started modding. Never had an issue. If you were closer I'd give you my old ones.

if your planning to lift, with the billies those will achieve that lift for you. just set them at the middle notch since the 3rd notch gives 2 1/2 give or take.
