    Well look at it this way everyone is guuna input there own opinions about this that and the other. If u need shocks then you won't notice a pair if Ranchos, kyb, skyjacker, bilstiens, etc. So the best cheapest ones is the best answer

    I just went through this and looking back over the years I had always went after the toughest looking thing I could find. In the end they all had an issue probably made wore by plowing.

    What I have now found is that if the cheapest is 25 and the most expensive at the store is 80 then I shop around 45 dollar range. I get a few quality years and done.

    If you do not have timbrens on the front - spend the money. If you have a ton of money to poop out ... then get a dual shock tower installed.
