Overpriced & Don't last

I replaced my original shocks with these late in 2013. My driving is 98% highway, I rarely haul anything, and I can't remember the last time I towed anything with this truck. The right rear shock has been leaking oil all over the wheel well area for weeks now and the ride has been terrible. They are getting replaced by some KYB Gas-A-Justs this week. Save your money. These overpriced things might aren't anywhere near worth the money.

I have a 2002 F 350 7.3, 4 x 4, lariat, LWB, crew cab, dually, and got no instructions on installing these shocks. Being old school I put the rear on I believe is the correct way (rubber boot up). When I tried to put the front on the same BUT they seem like they would not fit correctly so I turn them upside down (rubber boot down). That definitely look wrong.But after talking to 3 of your techs (one said boot up and 2 said down) I went with the 2 and put boot down. LOOKS FUNNY
