we run bilsteins now and have since 01. never had a problem with them whatsoever. nice thing is you can get them rebuilt with new shafts, revalved to different rates etc for cheaper than the price of a new afco.(around here anyway). everyones preference or choice though of course.

I will ad my 2 worth i feel the pros are worse then afcos....i have come to hate shocks for the reason of the unconsistance of both and the fade with both. I am switching all my shocks to bilsteins this year to help with maintaining a rate and knowing what i have. I had 3 sets of 94 rear shocks but had to remark them for what they \really were its real tough for a budget guy to want to try a new shock ...say you had a 73 and wanted to try a 74...but what you really had was a 74 and then the 74 you got was really a 73....try grabbing 4 shocks all the same and dyno will come to hate shocks also...till you s****e up enough to get some good ones.

Where can a guy get a guide sheet for the Bilstein shocks like I've seen for the PRO's and Afco's? Like for dry slick, heavy, rough? I looked on the Bilstein web site and didn't see anything like this. Wasn't able to get a selection of what they offer either. Anybody got a direction for me on shocks and set ups?
