Stock height shock options?

Looking mainly at Rusty's stock height shocks. $33 each.

Anyone have experiences with these or other stock height shocks? Will be running LCOG set up with stock height, bump stops, 31" tires.

Monroe Sensatrac or Reflex on my 90. Great alternative to Bilstiens.

I got rancho rs500s for half price at sears during a sale. I like them well enough, they are stiffer but no where near uncomfortable. It rides like a jeep now I think.

Thru a vendor on here, you should be able to get a set of RE twintubes for around that price. I heard that Rustys charges a LOT for shipping.
Bilsteins are good too.

Spend 2X that and get the Bilsteins--they are more than 2X as good.

Bilstein or Monroe if you want to keep the stock height. The other manufacturers just can't compare for ride quality.

Re: Stock height shock options?

I put on monroe sensatracs based on things I read here for ride comfort ect. The blown out stock shocks rode like a caddy compared to the monroes. The monroes feel as i would have thought the bilsteins would have felt. (based on bilsteins i've had on previous cars) Much less body roll, and much much firmer/harsher ride. there is no floating over bumps with the monroes as was the case w/ the well worn factory shocks.

As for me, if i was to do it all over again i'd look into something else i bought them based on supposed ride comfort and was not impressed. as for ride CONTROL which is really what shocks are ment to do, they work very well.
