thank you for your input 02kingstonram. this shock aborsorber is the heavy duty series i bellieve. does it matter if my truck isnt heavy duty? do u have this absorber on your truck? i hear a lot of good things about bilstein brand. if its ok to put it on my truck i might go for this one.

Those will work great. Bilstein is known to make a pretty stout shock compared to OEM. I heard these were great, but never personally ran these...yet. It says Heavy Duty series, but its actually a Light Truck/SUV rating.
