    Have a '90 K5. I think I have decided to buy a 3" TC lift w/ 4" blocks for the rear. (my truck sags a little in rear). $225 from ORD. Which shocks should I buy? I don't want the cheapest things around but I don't "wheel" much so I have no need for the best either. Just a good quality shock will do. Opinions?????

    Just get the TC shocks with your lift kit from ORD, they work fine

    Well I had considered the TC shocks but I think they are $35 each, as apposed to the above post where I could get Superlift shocks for $15 each. I may go with the TC, but I was just looking for a less expensive alternative. I have seen some people in here talk about the Gabriels from AutoZone. Which Gabriels? There are a number of different models from $12-$60.

    I'll second this one. the $15 shocks from superlift are great on my Burb.

    I'vealways bought Tuff country's before mainly because of "my price" but decided to buy a set of the superlifts off ebay 10 save $15 now I wish I would have spent the little extra and bought another set of TC's

    Just out of curiosity - what was wrong with the superlifts that you got?
