Bought my truck with a little over 200,000 on it and the shocks it came with weren't in great shape. The ride was really floaty and way too soft. After installing these shocks, the ride, as expected, firmed up quite a bit. A little too firm for my taste since my truck is a daily but the difference in grip and control is certainly noticeable. Great shock for the price just perhaps a little too stiff for the average driver.
