  • What are good Shock Absorbers?
  • For a 2000 ford F-150 V6 rear wheel drive with a basic 8 foot bed.
    Or for a 2001 Expedition 4wd XLT Sport. Thanks for any input...

  • I've had good service with Monroe Reflex on the old '95 Silverado, and SWMBO's Envoy.

  • I put Monroe on the belch mobile. But that was a long time ago. I put Koni on one of the race bikes, but that was even further back in history.

  • I put a pair of Koni shocks on my MotoGuzzi this summer. Nice shocks. Put a set of Monroe's on my Silverado back in 2009..

  • Used to be we could get a variety progressive springs for the Koni shocks. I used 60 / 90.
    Now they are soft, medium, hard.
    Nice 650 Guzzi for sale up here, but it has the 4 valve head, and that had problems with dropping valves. The springs were too stiff. Needs to be over 25 years old, so I can swap my collector plate.

    I put cheap made in Taiwan shocks on my XS1100.

  • Thanks guys. I have used Monroe's on the cars in the past and they were good. Except the expensive ones I put on the Mercury were way too stiff. Koni's are what we used on the muscle cars back in the 70's, they are very pricey, but good.
    These days I am just looking for a smooth ride and good control on these old country roads...

  • Typically the ones that pinch your wallet at Rockauto. If you only get tickled, you will be bouncing.
