You won't be disappointed. Anyone that runs them can attest.

I do not know because I have no experience with either one. I went with Fox because I know they are fairly easy to rebuild and revalve if needed but it seams more people like Bilstein or at least more Bilstein fans speak up about it. That's why I was kinda reconsidering my decision there for a bit but Anticanman made me feel like I made the right choice.

I went with fox because I feel it best fits my setup and my needs. Don't let me change your mind if you were leaning toward Bilstein though because like I said I have no experience with either one.

You can no go wrong with either Bilstein or fox. I prefer fox's with remote res. computed to bilsteins

I thought about the remote res ones but came to the conclusion that it was more for racing to help keep the oil in the shocks cooler longer. Also the price difference is kinda big. Maybe when I find a better job in the future I will get the ones with the remote Res if I like these enough.

Anyway back to the OP. I feel like I'm taking over his thread.
