    Are stock shocks orange on a 99 TA

    I know weird question but my car I find drives great smooth ride and handles well but I bought it in October did 1200 miles and had to store it. So would it be a big difference to change the shocks if they are stock that is and my car has about 97000miles. I was thinking Bilstein I have them on my Durango and I thought that I bought a new vehicle when I put them on I just wonder if it will make an amazing difference and if so is there something good that would be cheaper than Bilstein.

    Thank you in advance.

    Most of the Time Cheaper and Improvement don't mix. You will usually get what you pay for!!!

    Grab a set of KYB AGX shocks on Ebay. Their are adjustable and very good for the price... but not nearly the best shock out there. Mine do very well, except for the softer setting. It feels like you floating on jello. But just click it up to around 6 or 7 out of 8 and you will minimize your body roll and really improve corner/ride characteristics. I paid around 380 and I put'em on myself for free. Just don't kill yourself if you tackle the job yourself. (death by spring)
