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'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
