Any feedback on the best shocks to buy and why? Am I going to see any real performance difference between a Bilstien and a Monroe if I'm only cruising 500 miles a year? Thinking of replacing my old shocks on my 1988 but have to justify greater expense if performance is not noticeable. ??:huh:

Bilsteins provide much better ride and control. virtually eliminated wheel hop on my 2007. worth the price difference to me. :thumbsup:

Yea if you search the C4 threads, lots of great feedback on Bilsteins.

As far as initial performance differences, going to depend on their rates. The biggest benefit is they're strong, proven shock, that's going to last. Seen a few guys go the other route, only to lose that ride quality not long after a year.
