    Good, thread, my 93 1500 needs the same. Probably I will just go with whatever they have at CarQuest. BTW, I had the bracket that holds the shock rust off on the passenger side rear, and lost the whole shock on the road somewhere! (Gotta love the salt in Maine)

    For a working truck, I'd just buy a quality set of stock replacements. I would only buy something more expensive if a)it was a pleasure-only truck or b)it is lifted and needs something longer or with better response.

    Bilsteins or cheap gas-charged ones.

    You can usually get Rancho shocks for not much more than what the cheaper ones cost.

    Where's a good place/price on a new set of Bilsteins ? I've had really good luck with the factory oem's on the 1500.

    The Reflexs are a good choice...........the Monroe Sensatracs would also be good and a few dollars cheaper. Monroe products can be found at O'Rielly's Auto parts or Napa.
