Re: Bilstein for dummies
Ride quality is subjective...and Monroe makes a good shock. I've run everything from Monroes, to Doetsch Tech, to Rancho 9000 adjustables, to Old Man Emu, to Bilstein. To me, the best was clearly Bilstein. This is subjective though. Seat of the pants...
If you were to buy stock height bilstiens and then lift later, you might need to limit your down-travel to avoid damaging the shocks. Or, you might be able to install 2" lift shocks on a stock height vehicle with the expectation of lifting later. A lot of shocks are "0-2 inch lift" and should work in your application.
