I knew my factory shocks were bad but geez!!! I took them off and they had absolutely no bounce back (no wonder the truck bounced like crazy). I replaced with the Bilstein 5100 series and wish I had done this last year. I couldn't believe the improvement in how the whole truck handled. I would hands down recommend these to all who need superior shocks. The fabrication is on point, the dust boots are heavy duty, and total replacement time is about 2-3 hours. CHEERS!!
