    I didn't like how my truck swayed side to side on the highway, especially when changing lanes. After a lot of indecision trying to figure out the best way to spend less than $200 on it, I decided to go with new rear shocks. I have (had) Bilstein HD's on all 4 corners, they are about 4-5 years old and have probably about 40,000 miles on them. I spent a long time trying to figure out what rear shocks I wanted, I know most people recommend the 5100's but I had to be different so I finally went with Monomax's. I gotta say, I like em, better than the HD's and MUCH better than the crap OEM's I had originally. They are pretty stiff, but that's what I wanted. I'm keeping the HD's on the front for now, but the new rear's made a big difference in the back end sway, and it's actually about 1/2 inch taller now. If you're on the fence about new shocks, at least consider the monomax's, they're good if you're looking for extra control. Haven't been offroad with them yet though...
