I had the rear shocks blow on my '95. 180k miles on the originals, so no complaining. I can't remember what kind of KYBs I put on my '92 a few years ago, and I'd like to put the same ones on this truck. What model KYB are you guys using on the GenIIs? Thanks! Maybe Brendan will remember what we put on my other truck smile

Gas-A-Just seems to be the most popular...that's what I've got on mine too. It's definitely not a high end shock, but for our intents and purposes, it works just fine. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Yep, Gas-A-Justs. Unless you feel spendy and want to order the stock adjustable ones...for around $1000 for a set of four...

They WERE white. For some reason I had Monomax in my head? I'm going to stop by where I bought them and see if they still have a record of what I bought. Heck, I don't even remember what year that was! Thanks guys.

It was 2007. I had the new car and it was before I moved to south Carolina. I'll go with summer some time.

I had gas-a-justs on my first 95, they were good. I now have mono-max's on my current 95. I like the mono-max's more, the truck feels more composed on the road and high speed off road driving but you do give up a little comfort.

I had the Monomax's is my GEN II and absolutely loved them!! had them on there with the 2" lift and 33"s, after 4 years and 200,000km until I sold the truck, they still worked as good as new.

MonoMax is what we put on my '92 in 2007. I was able to tell when I looked them up online. I've been shopping around online, and the local places want $325 bucks for all 4, and Summit Racing wants $247 for the set. I'm going to see if any of the local stores (Advanced & Autozone) will price match. smile I know they did back in 2007. I checked NAPA, and they only listed the fronts, and they were almost double the price of Adv./AZ.

Thanks guys.
