Talking 2007 Grand Cherokee - Bilstein Shocks

Bought a 2007 GC with very low miles on it. I love the truck (V8 power and incredible handling for a heavy truck), and it replaced my 2003 Rubicon. My only complaint was the horrible stock shocks. If anyone out there is looking to fix a similar complaint, I installed a set of Bilsteins all around and the difference is night and day. A bit pricey for the shocks and labor (around $750 for all 4), but it is well worth it considering I was quoted $600 just for the front shocks and labor from Midas. I bought mine from 4-Wheel Parts Wholesalers online. Found them on sale with free shipping and had my mechanic put them on.
