Shocking!

Fixed ride issue with these.



Loosing oil, left rear was the worst one.



Upper bushings were oval.



Old vs new.



Installed.





Took about an hour, should have been less but one got away from me.

Nice, I enjoyed a ride improvement with Bilsteins on my 08. They are good shocks.

Thanks for the comments, I need to replace the graphics as it is a little frayed on the top.

Nearly 6 years now so I feel I got my hundred bucks worth, sadly with cost increases it is now right at $200.

Looking at one like this to honor our oldest who will retire at the end of the year unless he changes his mind again.

I like it... I'm an army brat, dad retired when I was in middle school. DBIL retires from the air force next month.

I like this one. It is only $99 at clear blue graphics.

Price is right, what about applying it?

The boss of me is a Army brat but did a stint in the Navy reserve...
Younger brother of mine retired out of the Air Force a few years ago.

Small world, no!

Aw, let's totally hijack this thread.....

Another Duffel Bag Baby here. Born at Ft Lewis, dad retired just before my senior year in high school. Spent more time in an M60A1 tank by the time I was 12 than most soldiers assigned to an armor outfit at the time -since my dad did the testing on that monster. Never regretted one minute of those 17 years traveling around.

Yes we hijacked it good. If your dad did the testing was he ever stationed at Aberdeen proving ground? My mom was also an army brat, met my dad at APG, got married there. 22 years later he was stationed at and retired from APG. My sister actually had her wedding reception in the same officers club room that my parents did! Oh and my parents rode a tank from the base chapel to the officers club for their reception.
