    Starting with the GMT900s (maybe even late model GMT800s) they switched to Ranchos (Tenneco) for the Z71/All Terrain packages. The Ranchos are garbage.

    Tons better. At your mileage the shocks are shot and the springs are "relaxed" a bit. Great choice.

    I put a set of Bilstein 4600 on my stock 2011 Chevy 2500HD. They've been on for a week and I can tell a noticeable difference. Of course, anything would be better than the worn out shocks that were on it.

    Half way between here and there.
    I got a long time to go for mine to be worn out before I upgrade. I waited until my 2002 had 100k on it before I changed out the shocks.

    I could definitely tell a difference in the way the truck handled on our trip to KY and back. :thumbs:
