RC Shocks

How much difference in ride quality do the shocks make? I just finished my soa and I am fixing to order some shocks. My plan was to get the RC ones off ebay for 130 bucks. How much better would the ride be if I spent a little more money. Do shocks make a difference in a stiff ride or soft ride?

Yes they do. If your looking to save a little money just get the Skyjacker Hydro shock. Last I checked there around $36 a piece.

Alot of people run them and love them.

^^I know, but a lot of mfgs will dump product through ebay. I know that its been mentioned that RC is doing better now, but I'd be leary of that one.

The best way too go for the money would be to buy the best shock available on the market for any said amount of money.

But for the cheapest. Yes the Skyjacker Hydro are decent for the little they cost.

No problem. But shocks do make a huge difference is a soft and harsh ride .

And as always you usually get what you pay for. A better shock will ride nicer but cost more. Good luck with your decision.
