I just pulled out the Bilsteins in the rear of my Blazer and replaced them with Monroe air shocks
World of difference
The charge was still good on the old shocks
The air has given me a much better ride and control all around

Longest lasting shocks I had were the Trailmaster SSVs. I like the Doetch Techs on the Jeep. Ranchos are pretty harsh.

I had good experience with Biltein's. They offer a smoother ride and I think they are better than the Rancho.
