    Anybody here use KYB Gas-a-just shocks? Im thinking about them for the 97 4x4. Always had a great ride in my other vehicles/trucks.. Right now they have a great deal going on where you buy 3 get one free.. So a complete set for my truck would run me about 200 smackeroos..

    Everyone here will tell you to check out Bilstein. I run on Bilstein's so I vote you check out the 5100's, 5100 adjustables and/or 5125's.

    KYB's are a great shock, I think they were the first gas charged shock absorber on the market, Bilstein came a little later but to answer your question if you found a good sale on the KYB's I wouldn't be afraid to get them in leu of the Bilsteins. KYB is Bilsteins equal for the most part in performance all things being equal, well established company .....:D :cool:

    About 10 years ago my dad put KYB gas a just shocks on his 95 4Runner and they rode solid and today they still do, and they still don't leak. I would not hesitate to buy KYB for OE replacement shocks.
