New shocks!

195k miles and the shocks looked OEM.

Ordered Gabriel 89432, installed them this morning.

No more bouncy-bouncy, nice a firm and smooth. Adjust to max btw.

Under 40 bux delivered!

I changed the front shocks with those and they helped a little bit. I only have 2 leafs up front so the shocks can only do so much.

Just got back from a little road trip and the shocks make a big difference.'

nice to hear you good experience with the shocks. my front end takes scary dives on bumps, but the shocks look too small to change that dive.

I haven't looked at the ones that Ya'll bought, sorry.
I think I need new shocks on the front but I have been debating changing to air shocks? Good/bad idea? Any thoughts?
If that's the Gabriel shocks DonD is referring to just say so and I will look in that direction. Thanks

I need to change out mine in the future. The coat of paint the privious owner put on just makes them look good, only on one side lol.
