Superlift SSR shocks??? Any advice?

To sum it up I won a voucher at a Jeep event for 50% off any superlift product. I looked through their product line up and really didnt see anything that caught my eye until I scanned through their shock selection. I read the specs for their Super Ride Select Remote Reservoir (SSR) shocks and became a bit intrigued. They do not make them anymore but I can still get them direct through Superlift. They were selling for around $180 a pop when they were still produced. Has anyone heard anything about them? Normally I am not a fan of Superlift products but then again these were made by Bilstein. I couldnt touch any other remote res shocks for what I am able to pick these up for due to the voucher.

"Superlift and Bilstein joined forces to create the ultimate suspension package for light trucks and SUVs. SS shocks are offered for vehicle suspension types – primarily IFS and coil sprung – that will realize the most dramatic performance gains. The patented SS shock absorber posses a multitude of features not found in other so-called performance shocks. It starts with the shock body; the seamless extruded steel body dissipates heat more efficiently, and heat is one of the major detriments to shock performance and life."

Some more from their specs...

While all Superide shocks are valved applicationspecific, the SS incorporates a unique digressive piston design that allows even more precise tuning. A special piston / valve assembly provides completely independent valving between compression and rebound cycles to increase reaction times regardless of vehicle speed.

Oil foam leads to shock fade. The SS virtually eliminates the possibility of foaming with a patented "floating" piston that divides the high-pressure Nitrogen gas and shock oil.

All components feature superior strength and tolerances that are typically associated with Aerospace technologies. The extruded body has a brushed exterior, finish plated in silver Zinc to withstand corrosive environments. The main shaft is solid induction hardened steel that is machined then precision ground and hard chromed for durability. Valve and piston components are machined - not stamped - and incorporate the highest quality seals. SS shocks also include premium rubber bushings and a black dust boot. This exceptional quality, combined with strict attention to detail, makes the Select Series the closest thing to a custom hand-built shock available today.
