    Need new shocks... couple questions

    After some reading it seems like the SLP Bilsteins are the way to go. What kind of shock is on my stock SS? And are they known to be garbage? I have 40k now and going over bumps is brutal.

    Stock shocks were DeCarbons. Not the greatest.
    It's on jackstands.

    On Stranos site, what is the difference between the HD Bilsteins and the SLP's?

    They used to be valved differently a long time ago. Don't think there's much difference now other than the price tag.

    Big question here is are you going for ride quality or performance.

    The koni str.ts have become pretty popular. Better performance over the decarbons while still having good ride quality and comes with konis warranty. The koni sale is also going on now. If you don't want to get into the cost of the koni yellows.

    If you really have alot questions between the bunch give strano a call and he can break it all down for you.
