      Save time by cutting off top bolts holding shocks on. The cheap OEM nuts will spin.

          I put these on my Dodge Ram 4x4 and my son's GMC Sonoma as replacements for the OEMs. They perform better than the OEMs on both vehicles as far as handling and ride. Also improving the ride height on the Sonoma. For the price, I wasn't looking for extreme performance, but I was impressed with what I got.

                  replaced old shocks (Gabriels). the Gabriels expanded quicker than this particular shock. Only one of my old shocks were still good. But will do for only light trucks with little hauling.

                                    To know the exact fit application, If you could please include the year make and model of the vehicle and we would be better able to assist you.

                                    There really isn't much difference in my opinion, just the truck shock absorber is more heavier duty.
