Bilsteins work really well when towing. They are very stiff, however, when driving empty. The control and handling you gain with them is amazing.
My Chevy dealer had recommended Edelbrock shocks for Suburbans in HD use. He said they're progressive, providing a softer damper when empty, and become progressively stiffer as the load increases.
I can't picture a passive shock doing this, so I bought the Bilsteins.
