It is just shocking!!!

Okay, my KYB shocks have been on for about 8-9 years & I am beginning to feel they need replaced. These shocks have been fine & trouble free, just wanted any input as to your favorite shocks & why. 1994 Astro Extended 2wd.

Thanks

Find a transmission shop that gives free diagnostics, nothing to lose. Get a few estimates, shop around. Good luck.
