Will they last?
Time to replace the O.E. shocks on my '88 F-350. After 237,000 miles they must be shot, right? Maybe not. I ordered the SX8000s. I took off the old ones, and they seemed just fine. Oh well, I have these, might as well put 'em on. They're lighter than the originals-- is that good or not? On the O.Es, the entire shock was enclosed. The piston shaft on these is exposed. Won't road grime cause wear? Shouldn't the dust boot be included? Not a bit of difference in the ride. Not completely happy.
