    My factory Z71 shocks are shot. Anybody have any input on what brand I should get for a replacement? The truck plows snow, and goes off-road occasionally. Thanks for any, and all input!

    anything on the market is going to be better than factory, just go to a local off road shop and get rancho's or fabtechs or something like that.

    Buy Name brand heavy duty if possible, don't put the boots / covers over them. The boots / covers hold moisture and make the shock's skirts rust out quickly.
