Shocks shouldn't be bought over the phone/Internet

I called to ask for a 'sportier' set of shocks for my 13 year old Camry, which IMHO, is the last of the drivers' Camries, (a nod to LJK Sethright of "CAR" magazine). I was reassured by the 'adviser' at your end of the line that the Gabriels would be on par with Konis and Bilsteins. Well, they are not. The rebound control is no better then the original equipment. The Gabriels are not at all what I'd asked for. Three stars for the shocks and no star for the guy who took my order.
Gabriel Ultra Shocks review

I am pleased with the Gabriel Ultra Shocks (rear) that I installed in my 1993 Chevy S-10 pickup. I had previously installed a set of Gabriel Shocks on the front that I liked, so I picked Gabriel Ultra Shocks from AutoAnything to replace the rear shocks. They arrived quickly from AutoAnything, and they were packaged well and were easy to install for an amateur. They have improved the handling and ride a lot compared to the old shocks. I have loaded a heavy load in the back, and it drove well.

Replaced the shocks and struts on a 2001 Acura MDX with 158,000 miles. I don't know if the ones on the vehicle were originals since I bought the vehicle with 92,000 miles on it. The rear shocks were beefier than the Honda shocks. The front springs were very strong so I paid a shop $70 to swap the springs onto the new struts. Great ride and handling with the new shocks.
