Hey guys, found this thread and I am in need of new shocks. Your input is appreciated!
10% daily driver
25% dirt roads- forest service grade or just slightly worse (this is not my offroader)
2000 Chevy 3500 w/ Advanced Four Wheel Drive System and 4" Lift (all leaf springs)
-Interior has full cabinet package, mic, fridge, A/C, furnace, pop top
-Will never tow anything greater than 3500#
-Van does not have a rear sway bar
It doesn't seem that I would benefit or ever take advantage of an adjustable shock so hopefully that narrows things a bit. Hoping for shocks that excel on moderate bumpy roads and around town- maybe even cut down on the body roll as I am sure you are all aware of
Current ride quality is not poor, one shock is leaking and these happen to be the originals installed about 60k miles ago. Just going through her as I am the new owner and updating what I can.
Which shock have you guys employed and seen an increase in ride quality/performance? What are your recommendations for replacement given the above info? Brands/models to stay away from? Other thoughts or possible mods to increase ride quality?
