Default Whats the smoothest , best riding shock for our blazers???

Im in search of a shock that will ride REALLY smooth... I hate the ride in my blazer right now. I have a '89 4x4.... but I almost never go anywhere near dirt. I'm not looking for handling or performance, just the smoothest ride availiable... what will pay the ticket? Thanks guys!

Daniel

I like the Bilsteins on mine, but there were more than one type of suspensionpackage on Blazers over the years. On your first gen, I might suggest looking at Monroe's choicecs.

I have the cheap monroe gas-matic shocks on right now and I hate them.... They are pretty new too! I just cant stand them so Im willing to spend some coin on good ones... Im hesitant to go with monroe agian due to my experience w/ them. Will there be a noticable difference w/ the sensa tracks? How about gabriel or rancho, due they make a ride quality shock? Thanks

Daniel

The gas-matic line is the cheapest shock Monroe makes. I was happy with the Monroe Reflex shocks on my Bravada, but there were noticably stiffer than stock.

Bilstein is going to give you the most supple ride.

I have ranchos, as do all our trucks and we really love them. The RSX are self-adjusting.
