It is not as harsh, and I notice a lot less rear end hopping and skipping with bumps. When towing, it is much smoother, with rear end undulations greatly minimized. My wife wanted new shocks, but now that I have them I would not give them up!
At 15K, after a 5K trip to the Yucatan pulling a sunnybrook 24CKFS FW, my stock shocks were shot. I noticed a lot less wheel hop(I live in dirt roads) and much improver cornering with the Bilsteins. The trailer rides smoother too. 20K on the Bilsteins now.
I put 30,000 miles on my Bilsteins and didn't adjust anything. The tires wore well and I noticed only improved perfomance. I have heard that the Helwig bar is also a problem if you have the MagHytec diff. cover. Can anyone verify that?
