Anyone used them? Rockauto has rebares on them. Trying to decide between them or the bilstien hd's. Any info is great

I think maybe one or two have used the struts. Most of their shocks are like any other typical shock, just find some with the right collaspe and extend lengths and try em.
I hate to advocate weird chemicals, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone...but
they've always worked for me.

I have had both now, and I am going back to the bils man. The ranchos aren't bad, but I liked the bilstiens more. They have better travel I feel.

Ranchos are not bad shocks, though I still recommend Bilstein HD shocks. They are a bit firmer, but the real advantages are good handling and cornering.
