Before i installed the brand new shocks, my 200,000 mile OE shocks were bent almost 90° out of place. The bushings were cracked and rotting away. Before, you could bounce on the rear bumper, stop, and it would keep going. Now with the new shocks it is hard to even bounce. Brings a lot of new life into an old truck. They work really great and i like being able to haul stuff and not drag my bumper on the street.
