I don't have an 06 but i just installed mine about half an hour ago and i love them. they are stiff (as you would expect from a performance shock) and you can't really feel the bumps. I only ran into one problem when installing them....when i got the top bolted on it was a B**** to compress the shock upwards to get the bottom to go into the holes. I did it by hand on the first one but the second shock i decided not to use up energy and i just put a jack under it and used that to compress it up.
