KYB shocks, are they good ?

4 posts in this topic

I read many places they praise this brand, I am replacing the stock ones on my Ram diesel, many people like them better than Bilstein.

What's your opinion ?

They are a pretty decent shock. Most people do prefer them over a BIlstein because they buy a BIlstein cause they hear that they are the best. Bilsteins are good for offroad or extreme use. KYB's will have a softer dampening and ride better on the roads. They won't rebound as fast or soak up the huge bumps, but if you're thinking more road oriented then the KYB's are a great shock. I don't want you to think they are too road biased cause I know you live out in the boonies wink.gif but if they are for your truck and its gonna get beat on a bit, the KYB's may not do a good enough job and they won't last as long either.

Also in the same price range is always the Rancho 9000's. They are 9-position adjustable and for more moeny you can buy a controller to adjust them in the cab.

Thank you Sir, the use you described is exactly what I need, I do travel 99.9% on dry roads (towing), the 2 miles of gravel to get to my house don't worry me too much.

I want to have a nice smooth ride, seems like I made a good decision.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
