The first set I had were cheapo NAPA gas shocks. I know there is something better, I'm looking into the KYB GR2 shocks, they seem pretty solid and cheap too. WHat do you guys think?? (Going on a 82 Monte)

i run bilsteins on the front and gabrails on the back off a s-10 blazer the bilstiens will cost a little more up front but make up for it at the pay shack

I did what everyone recommended. I run Bilstiens all the way around. I wont run anything else from now on. Even though I've had to replace 2 already this year due to accidents. They are expensive, but well worth it.

Last year I ran a set of NAPA shocks on a '78 Monte. This year I have a '81 Malibu with Bilstien's and you will never see me buying shocks at NAPA again.

Do you guys think Bilsteins are better than AFCO shocks?
