Shocks!

NITRO 9000 GAS SHOCKS - JCWhitney

Guardian Shock Absorbers - JCWhitney

Im in the market for some shocks cuz mine are gettin really rusty. Now i dont wanna spend alot of money either. My back shocks are in the worst condition and I plan on doing them first then the front. Is there anyting wrong with doing it that way? and are those shocks up there any good?

check out the kyb gr-2's
they are basically the same as those nitro ones but are built alittle more solid and last longer.
don't quote me but i believe they usually run like $35??

I just bought the GR-2s off just suspension.com. If you buy from them go through amazon as they seem to be cheaper.

you get those put in yet bob? all the customers i've installed them for say they ride great!
probably what i should have done but i wanted the stiffness the monotubes bring(better for towing and it helps alot handling wise and stops nose dive when braking hard)
