Thank you George for the link to Monroe. This finally answers a very pressing (ouch!) question. Gas pressurized, single tube shocks price out very well against factory replacements. Your horizons expand when you have knowledge. Thanks again!

Take care,
Sean

I am beginning to wonder.....if we even need shocks with a dura-torque axle. The shocks seem pretty wimpy to me, not sure if they do much. Just a thought.

Pick,

I can assure you the shocks are required. Before I replaced mine, it took half day to clean up the interior after 100 mile trip. Once replaced you can feel difference from front seat of the Suburban.

Best improvement I have made.

Glad to hear that....

George, I am in the process of replacing both my axles. The previous owner bought a set of 4 shocks, and never installed them. I can't wait to take her out for a spin with the new axles, shocks and tires!
