I like them pretty good. They work about as well as the stock shocks, but they theoretically should last longer because they're aluminum. Plus, I personally like Associated shocks because they're really smooth.

The one thing I don't like is that fact that you have to use a ton of preload clips to get the truck to sit as high as it was with the original shocks. You have to put so many clips on there that you almost cover the entire shock body. Looks kinda stupid if you ask me.

Also, the Associated shocks are skinnier that the stock ones. I think Associated should have included heavier springs. Oh well, what're ya gonna do?:rolleyes:
