    Any suggestions on a good set of aftermarket replacement shocks? Mostly used for on-road boat towing. Some small trailer towing , and hopefully some snow-wheeling this winter.
    Thanks,

    i've always been partial to Bilstien shocks. they're a good n' firm, but they won't rattle your teeth out /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Elderbrock IAS shocks,
    If they are all they are cracked up to be, it should take out some of that body sway the Chevy's have (I think the Chevs are alittle soft on the shock/spring rate, personaly)

    I just drove one ('96 heavy 3/4 ton) with those shocks installed, I didn't notice much of a difference in the ride quality, seemed pretty "stock" to me - at the time.
    Then I noticed one of the sway-bar end links were broken. Eliminating any-sawy bar effect on the truck, but I didn't notice exsessive body lean in the corners when I drove it.
    (then again, I wasn't really looking for it either)

    Thats about all the input I have.
    I don't get the chance to do "back to back" comparisons, very often.
