99 Ford F-150 200k front and back replaced.

You will get what you pay for. Ride was significantly stiffer than OEM on bumps/rough roads howerver straight highway, curves and brake dipping were good. Too much dip when going into drive way from street hitting the bumper on the "A" frame and rough roads were out of the question. Had one of the 2 front shocks valve stick open within first 50 miles causing replacement and another hour under the truck.

Mounting groument and hardware was very generic and not a good fit the upper frame using a 9/16 nut and stud. There was alot of movement to get it centered giving question to the reliability of the fit. Smaller stud did not accomodate brake sensing cable clamp allowing it to flop around.

Pulled both of them back off within 50 miles after install and put on a set of sensa-trac's which is what I was going to install in the first place. Heads and shoulders performance above the Gasmatic LT Trucks. I think if you want to call these LT, think RANGER not F150. SensaTrac was better built and MUCH better Fit/Ride making it will worth the extra money.

Bottom line, on a budget and shocks are shot? Throw a set of these on. Keeping the truck? Go for the SensaTrac or Reflex.

              Very inexpensive product that delivers noticiable improvements such as during breaking, driving stability, handling, improved sharp turns. Product install was simple ensure to have a jack to raise the lower control arm which raises the shock so you have enough thread for the top nut.

                        To me a waste of time and money. Replaced all four on my F`50. Had 145K on previous shocks, and have noticed 'no' improvement in the ride. Still feel and hear every little bump in the road.
