    Anyone ever tried this brand of shocks? I've ran Monroe and Gabriel and haven't been real impressed with either brand. I ordered a set of those shocks and they're actually cheaper than Monroe or Gabriel and they claim they're much better. We shall see...

    I've seen those but I'm a little hesitant to spend the money. If they actually lasted 3 years minimum they would be worth it. The bulldog shocks have a 2 year warranty on them and I'm hoping they last at least 6 months. Gabriel and Monroe are good for about 3 months and then I can tell by ride quality they're not doing much after that.

    I get the paccar ones and I’m not sure they do anything. At least I never see them leak. I just replace every year.

    Well initial reaction to the shocks is, they're shocks. Lol. Seen to be a little heavier than the Gabriels I took off. Not sure that means anything. Got them swapped out so in a week or so when I go back out well see how they do. Gonna be hard to get a real comparison though since the shocks they replaced were totally worn out and probably about 6 months overdue to be replaced. My main thing is how long they will last and only time will tell that. On a good note, I paid $265 for all 6 shocks and I ordered them on Friday morning and they arrived at my house on Monday about noon. Stay tuned for more...

    Find it parts. Raneys and 4 State Trucks carries them also but they're higher at those places. Used my Gabriel numbers to cross them on Bulldog's website.

    I use to buy Gabriel, Monroe’s thru the years, even bought a pair of high dollar “Koni” shocks back in the days for my COE, made a big difference. But now I’ve found out that “Paccar” shocks last longer and have a 2 year warranty compare to one mentioned and cost the same. So it’s Paccar shocks for me.
