Worthwhile Up-grade

This is an up-grade that will make a real difference when towing your A/S.
At 39k miles I replaced the OEM shocks on our 95 Burb with the Edelbrock IAS, a real noticeable improvement. The inertia valve reacts instantly to abrupt changes too road conditions, as in pot holes or obsticles,but under a constant load, as in braking,turning,or dip's in road surface they stiffen substantially.
We now have about 170k on the Burb and the second set was installed at 129k. So at about $80.00 bucks apiece, I think it's a pretty good deal.
Be safe........Stream-on!!!!

Compared to Bilsteins? I have a 2008 Ford SD and will replace the Continentals with the new Michelins and the stock shocks with Bilsteins. I used the Bilsteins on my 96 Burb and loved them.

New Michelins for truck

I have heard good things about the new Michelin LTX® A/T2 Tires.

They supposedly ride much better and are very quiet.

Bilstein's are a good choice, but would recommend replacing all four at once.
