Yeah...I wouldn't put them up for an award for the best ride ever...but they were an improvement over stock IMO. I have the hydros as well.

I have the Zone Nitros and I can honestly say that I am very happy. The are a little more expensive than the Hydros but I would think worth it.

What I was recommended when ordering my lift...

On-road use (mall crawler) - hydros will give a better ride
Off-road use (DD/weekend warrior) nitros will perform better off-road

From what I'm seeing though...even if the nitros aren't as comfortable on road, they're still obviously very tolerable.

Yep, mine is a daily driver with Nitros and a 2"BB and I am perfectly happy.

As others have said, they're not bad for a budget shock...i currently run them and they're better than stock but of course there are better options.

I've only got 10k on these so when i go a little longer on them i'm going to replace them with bilstein 5100's

Not the best, I'm not sure I'd waste money on them again (the nitros). They rode about the same or somewhat better than the worn out shocks on my 98, but the newer shocks on my 04 were much nicer.

They've been on for a little over a year and a half, and my rears are completely shot. I'm just putting up with them for now until I get around to outboarding the rears.
