Probably need new shocks on my '03 GMC 2500 Xcab 4x4 ...
I do not want anything that 'adjusts' - I have Timbrens on the rear, no air bags.
Truck carries my camper (Lance 3000 lbs) at least 75% or more of its miles ... it has 180k miles on it now. Probably 75% of the miles on the highway, and the rest camping or off-road somewhere. Don't want to trade it, don't want to buy a new truck, don't want to buy a new camper. Don't want leather seats instead of new shocks.
Just want a recommendation for what shocks to buy. Considering the use, want good quality, not 'cheapies' And, if you can explain the reason you recommend that particular shock, would be great ...
I know, Bilstein, Rancho, Monroe - all good brands, so the reason you chose one is more important than which brand or price. Thanks M44
I have the KYB Monomax with the Timbrens. KYB's info and talking with a number of suspension shops sold me on the Monomax. I have had them for 6 months and have put 1000 km of camper travel on them. So far they have been great both on and off road.
Times change and my info may not be the late test...but Rancho and Rancho is or was the largest manful of shocks in the US and in fact makes nearly every brand there is out there except Bilstien.
I know you do not want adjustable, but I like them and have run them for over 12 years and never looked back. You can adjust them in less than 5 min for all 4 and difference is is so great you will not believe it can all come from shocks.
