HEMI Shock absrobers replacement advice

After 115.000Km i believe I need to replace my HEMI's (2007) shock absorbers.

I need a model that will help my back spine with lesser vibrations as possible.
No offroad for me.

Any suggestion?

Re: HEMI Shock absrobers replacement advice

Monroe will be the best of both worlds for soft ride and longevity. The OEM struts and shocks are mostly toast by 60k miles. You're long overdue for a replacement and you'll notice a HUGE difference. I went Monroe about 30k miles ago and haven't looked back!

I have the FSD's, I would not say they are comfortable though, They are sporty and firm, but not rough or harsh. They are special order from Netherlands, so with shipping over 1200 bucks a set. Since you have a bad back looking for smooth ride, they are not the best choice....For comfort I would go with new OEM and they can be bought fairly cheap from some Mopar online dealers.

Re: HEMI Shock absrobers replacement advice

Just put 4600 Bilsteins on 06 HEMI w/stock springs but changed all the isolators. It raised the front 1 3/4" and the back 3/4". Changed the rear sway to stock SRT and added 265/50/20's. Here's before and after.
