KYB alternate shocks? - 11/29/20 10:05 PM


( I searched)

There used to be a listing on here for an alternate part number of KYB that was an upgrade over stock Dodge Raider shocks....Anybody know the numbers or know where that is here on the board?

Much thanks,
Tres

Bilstein shocks worked well on my 89. I'm sure others have good experiences with other manufacturers.

Had Skyjacker on a '75 Dodge 3/4-ton, Pro-Comp on my '87 Ramcharger.

Skyjacker has listings.

Pro Comp is NIF - - Not In File

Not tested them out yet, but the Pro Comp ES3000 look beefy and are easy to push pull, should be soft on slow ups and downs, firm on faster stuff, not gas charged i dont think as they dont spring back open.
Will give a ride report soon.

I bought the KYB gas shocks from rockauto for mine. Initially very stiff, softened up substantially after a year. I'd say there's better options for an upgrade out there.

I had Pro Comp es3000 and was not impressed. I bought KYB but have not put them on yet.
