Buying new shocks, thinking probably KYB monomax
Hey guys, I have been researching and searching the forums for about 2 hours now reading reviews on shock options. I acquired an 01 4x4 ranger that was abused pretty hard so to say the least, the suspension is ****. Now im used to driving my audi and when i got in this thing, I felt like I was driving a radio flyer wagon. I don't ever expect to get the same ride quality, but Im looking for something that will be a little nicer to drive around with.
Now I've read that the monomax's have a stiffer ride quality, which confused me on a couple posts because people mentioned that "a pothole that used to WHAM, now only slightly BUMPS" (excuse the poor description, its just quoted from a post I read). Now the way I interpret it is that would be a softer ride quality, no?
Let me describe what I want and maybe someone can give me some re-assurance. I've pretty much made up my mind on the monomax's, but I'm looking for a good daily driving ride quality, very very very seldom offroading, and OCCASIONALY, trips to lowes for lumber and other home improvement type crap. no heavy towing or trailering. maybe some jetskis or a small boat in the future.
Oh, and ride height is stock right now.
Thanks for the help.
