Bang for the buck
I was a tad bit hesitant about ordering these particular shocks. But having just purchased a 1990 chevy C1500 cheyenne with 179,500 miles, I knew the shocks needed to be replaced with a heavy duty shock. These load carriers delivered. The bed is stiff and solid. I have confidence with carrying bevy loads.
What a buy
These Gabriels were nearly twice the price at most other websites. I have a limited budget and was ready to settle for a lesser shock. My old Monroes were not totally shot but ready to be replaced. What a difference. The ride smoothed out, the steering was more positive. My old beast felt new again. Love these things. Someone wrote that new shocks compressed easily for installation...not these. I am impressed for the price I paid.
