I have not heard of anyone that has these shocks. I think they are only for lifted vehicles though. I put a set of Edelbrock Performer IAS shocks on my truck a little while back and they have been working out just fine. Better than the factory shocks any day. I am sure someone is running them though...
FWIW, if I'm not mistaken the canisters contain compressed nitrogen gas, not extra oil. This is to keep the shock temperatures down for better performance on off-road use, same idea as what dirt bikes use.
Chevyfreek... I've heard good things about the IAS too but never anything about the Extreme Travels.
