My Tahoe with Bilstein's rode nicer than my Lincoln Town Car...both were the
same year, the Lincoln had less miles. When it came time to replace, I
decided to go with a heavy duty Monroe truck shock...drove it for 10 miles
and returned to have them removed and Bilstein's installed. If I had to, I'd
pay three times more for Bilstein...luckly they were about the same price.
My '99 Yuk's OE Bilstiens didn't like the BFG A/T's I put on at 40k. Rear
was hopping on sharp bumps, fronts where OK. Tried different air pressures
also but no dice.
I tossed on a set of Monroe Sensa Tracs on the rear and it rides better,
hopping way less.
I don't like Monroe's but it was a quick try 'em, you got them in stock,
experiment to see what if as my trucks a pavement tow vehicle not a off
roader so my concern was on road ride.
At 85k now and still got the same shocks in.
