I have zero drive time on them right now so I cant say yet, but I was running stock shocks spaced up with a few washers to get me by, so Im sure anything will be an improvement haha.

I can tell they are stiff, I had to muscle em in there lol

Man mine are kinda bouncy ... they do have a lot more flex than my other shocks .. and shocks can be limiting to flex so .. I guess that's what their good for ... I'm not a fan of their ride quality though.. I really want to get some coils ... sooooonnn

Yea, Im expecting bouncy but I can handle it I suppose. Maybe the little extra weight from my bumper will help some with that. I got them just as cheap as new OE replacements cost so Im sure theyll meet my fairly low expectations lol.

Lol thanks. Been several people getting reports of 60k mile tread life if rotated pretty regular. GregB_00XJ has had a set for 3 years and he said he still has all kinds of tread and really likes them. I think theyll serve me well. Im curious to see how they do aired down at WBR next weekend.

Hmmm thats comforting. Gives me hope that its possible lol. He said they were cutting the steel this morning so hopefully it goes fast after that. I need it to get here if for nothing else than the sake of recovery points and making you jelly.
