Well I bit the bullet and purchased a set of Koni FSD shocks. Well I don't know if i'm comparing these new shocks to the tired 12 year old factory Bilsteins but what a huge difference. There is no more porposing when I go over ruts in the interstate, the ride feels much smoother, I used to hear dishes rattle and the grate from the microwave bouncing around and now silence.
They were expensive, $ 160.00 each but so far, this is probably the best upgrade i've done to date. Now for the Safe-T-Steer steering stabilzer and i'll be ready for the bi-weekly trip from Charlotte, NC to Gainsville, FL for the football season.
