    I know I should just search, but I'm in a hurry and I need a quick answer. I can get a good deal on these ($40 each) from a local shop that's usually known for ridiculous prices. Are these good shocks? I'm running stock susp., 33's, and mostly on-road driving. I think I've heard they're pretty good, but I can't remember, and the clock is ticking on the good deal. Thanks!!

    I have superlift shocks on mine, not sure if superride or not, but I would not buy them again. I think they are too soft on compression

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    whats your local shop? I know a few places around here, most are not 4x4 exclusive, but carry a lot of stuff, at reasonable prices.

    It's the "4x4 And Pickup Store" in the Levittown Shopping Center. He's having a clearance sale since the center is finally being razed and rebuilt. I'd buy from him more often, especially since I'm 5 min. from him, but his prices are usually way high, and I just don't have the cash to pay for the convenience. I haven't even bought anything but gas for my truck lately...

    If you are ever over here in the feasterville area, check out Street Road Accessories. They deal only with trucks, and can order most anything you need in the way of aftermarket and get it in a few days. Prices are a little higher than average, but the customer service is good. Also check out Becker Audio on busleton pike right behind the suburban diner. The guy runs a custom audio shop, but will special order you any thing you want, and if you haggle for like 5 minits, you can get him down to a good price usually. This guy would sell his own mother if you haggle long enough.

    When you say "higher than average", is that higher than mail-order average or higher than retail-store average? I don't mind paying for the convenience, as long as it's not ridiculous...
