Default What Shocks are YOU running?

Just wanted to see the different types of shocks everyone is running on their ZR's, I'm still running the good ol' stock blue and yellows! Looking at the procomp ES 3000's; anyone have any experience with those? What size should I get?

Monroe Reflex. Had them on for several years now and they seem fine to me. I would like to get some longer shocks now that I've lifted the truck slightly.

well, im just a little old non zr2 blazer, but i still have the stock bilsteins, though I plan on putting on a new set of bilstein hd's or monroe mono tube shocks. Im leaning toward the bilsteins due to their widely known longetivity. I can attest to this myself, as on 85k on my blazer and they still have a good amount of life in them. Oh and btw, i posted out of pitty...

I made a thread asking about the pro comps and the guy that responded said he liked them pretty well and they have been on for awhile. So I think the pro comps are good shocks.

But personally, I would go with the monroe's mentioned above as some place around here I think sears, installs them free of charge when purchased from there. It'll save you a bit of labor.

But as for me, I'm still running stockers. They have plenty of life left and I'm going on 209k.

You know what else is lame... ^^^^^^^^^^ Search FTW!!

I too used Monroe Reflex on the front & Monroe Sensatrak w/ Load Assist in the rear of my old Bravada. My Rainier was stock; why fix what ain't broken. My Tahoe is stock right now, but when I do change them I'll be going to be putting on Bilstein HD shocks.

You will be hard pressed to find a better shock than the stock Bilsteins on a ZR2. This has been discussed many times over.

And, yes, I am still running the stockers with 206K miles and coming up on 11 years old. They still work perfectly fine.

Well ya see ; I did search, but the search feature on this forum is also pretty lame sometimes and not one thread came up under suspension tech for procomp ES 3000's. Maybe I titled the thread incorrectly, I'm really just wondering about the procomp's BUT would be open to suggestion on other companies.

BTW, Bilsteins are very nice, just $$$.
