I forgot about the solid v independent setup. The whole body feels a thousand times stiffer too. Talk about comparing apples and oranges.

Re: Help me understand shock valving?!

Raced ECORS with 5100 Bilsteins and they never let us down. Tough shock, great for the price.

I now run valved 7/8 shaft Fox 2.5 Rem Res. with a flutter stack. Its super easy to tear down a shock if necessary. Rides like a dream over hole filled back roads. Obviously they're pricey, but getting Fox 2.0 that are valved to your weight and throw a flutter stack in there, I think you will be very happy. Comes down to your budget I guess. Can't go wrong with Bilsteins.

Re: Help me understand shock valving?!

I run 255/100 up front with a 7100 series 14" travel short body. been very happy with them. I have the same thing in the rear but some wierd valving thats not listed on their site.

foudn the rear was 246/94 with a 30% increase in high speed valving for use with air bumps.

The tahoe also has a separate frame...no unibody crap....which contributes to the stiffer feeling.
