    new shocks what ones to get?

    Im wanting to repace my shocks since they are not sitting level anymore. Im in a SUV with 20" rims so the ride gets a little bumpy on city streets. i was wondering if any of you new the diference between the two shocks im linking to.

    Cheaper:

    More expensive:

    I'd get the cheaper shocks. Ranchos are really better suited for high performance use, and you're paying for a better design built to withstand hard use which you probably won't need. New shocks won't help with the ride you get from low profile tires though. You still have to live with that.
