    I plan on buying the 4" tuff country front springs, steering arm, and SX8000 nitrogen shocks from the web site. I just wanted to know how good those shocks were and who makes them. I dont think that anything crappy would come from ORD so I am not to worried. Just real curious I guess.

    I'm not sure who the original manufacturer is, I know there's only a couple of shock manufacturers out there and they build everybody's brand name shocks so for all I know you could be getting shocks off the same line as Rancho.
    The TCI's are a good entry grade shock. Their not crappy shocks but they're also not a bilstein. For a shock you pay $35.00 for, they do a good job. What we're finding is a lot of enthusiast type guys save some money on the shocks when they first do their suspension since it's easy to spend over a grand on misc. details, then they go back after a while and upgrade shocks and mount. If you want the good stuff right away, pony up for some gas monotube shocks, but be aware they all cost $100 or more.
