What can I say -- Bilstein is great. Firm, yet it absorbs pot holes and bumps well. Has great handling that's firm and solid when riding at any speed.

Awesome for hitting the dirt roads at higher speeds. Can be a bit rough around the city, though.

Replaced shocks/struts with Bilstein HD, new truck was the result. Very nice bang for buck. Easy to install, used stock springs and am very satisfied.

Mono-Tube Gas w/STMô Shock Relocators. LOVE THEM! No noise and not too hard and not too soft! Goldilocks would love them!

Ride is somewhat harsh. The stock ones were wore out. So, I don't have a good point of reference. May ride as well as the next brand. Shocks have a solid controlled feel.

great gift for a friends, the ride is smooth. I think one might be leaking gas or something weird.

these shocks put up well with the rigors of offroad. they take the beating i put on them while playin in dirt. stiff enough to drift on dirt yet at slower speeds, flexing over obstacles is easily done. goes great with the 3 1/2 inch installed in my wrangler and i feel i can possibly hit over 30 in the dirt roads..want to try them in the sand though.handles pretty well on the freeway, allowing me to hit 80 with 33'' tires but more comfortable at 70. im impressed.

These shocks are great if you do not have to deal with speed bumps. Have a nice sport driving feel, excelent cornering.
One of the shocks went out prematurely, luckly they are guaranteed for life but still have to pay for labor to replace.
