Good shocks perform well, getting the grommets in the shocks is a problem, we had a press to install them and had to fight with them to seat, we greased them and they were still a fight. It took longer to get the grommets seated, than to unpack them, remove the old shocks and install the new 8000s.
Shocks worked just fine only negative shock was missing the nut
Shocks went in fairly easily and worked out great only issue was one of the front struts was missing the nut so I had to use the old nut. The washer was sealed in the package without the nut. The other shock was complete with nut and washer.
