procomp shocks?

Are they good or no? After my BL i want to add a more aggressive shock than stock, but nothing crazy. Ive noticed some of the ProComps you can get for around 30$ a peice and its but 3 get 1 free. Are they good? does anyone run them? thanks - Jay

I ran the ES3000's on my old Nissan Frontier and they were definitely an improvement over stock and an ok shock for the price. As long as you don't offroad too agressively they would be ok. I would strongly recommend picking up some Bilsteins though. It's more wise to invest in a good pair of shocks that will last you for a while than to keep paying for cheaper shocks that give out quick.

i like my es9000's. They are a better, but stiffer ride than the stock shocks. I haven't had any other shocks to compare them too though.

im runnin the es3000's, im liking them so far. taking them offroading quite a bit, thru mud, rocks, and general trails. They do pretty decent, but then again I have nothing to compare to over stock.

what about shocks that are adjustable? im not sure what to do.. stiffer or adjustable

i want to put a nice bumper up front and a winch eventually and im pretty sure all that weight will make the front sag.. what should i do to compensate for that?
