Need help on lower ball joints and shocks..

With Graduation less than a month away Im planning how Im going to spend the money I get from realitives,, besides spending it on school

new lower ball joints - looking at MOOGs cause they seem highly recommend by people on here, cheapest place I could find them at, though it does not say the brand, they have the exact same part number: http://www.darkhorseparts.com/html/page_061.html

new shocks - though I dont know where to start like what brand, something that will work great with the lift I currently have, any recommendations? lookin at: http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

maybe remote start and/or power windows,, I wanted new seats but dont see it happing,,

and just for fun I made a vid of my trucks evolution over almost 3 years Ive had it: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...oid=2025050926

Dude, either you can be like everyone else on the road or you can go with better...KYB Monomax shocks. Dont go with Ranchos, if you have ever seen the way one was built you would think again before puttin them on any truck. The Rancho is a twin-tube design, and the gas and oil combine creating shock fade. Go with a mono-tube shock, no fading whatsoever.

So what you are saying is the KYB is the best shock in the world. If I buy it and put it on my truck I will never need another shock again. It has no flaws it is the perfect shock. And it is cheap. there is no other that can compare. We should all bow down to KYB for perfecting the shock. All other companies should cough up there businesses now because before long the KYB will be the only shock you can find on a vehicle.
