Hey everyone, I'm new here.  I've also just purchased my first bronco!!!  It's a '79 with a slight lift 2-3" and 35" tires.  It needs shocks... bad!!!  What does everyone prefer???  It will be my daily driver.  My commute is roughly 30 miles a day.  I do not plan on doing any offroading.  Maybe to the beach but thats it.  Thanks in advance for any info!!!!!

Yo vixxxyn,

Welcome!

I like Bilstein brand. http://cart.bilsteinus.com

Best anything is similar to asking about best beer.lol

But the Bilstein shocks have better quality parts. My KYB gas adjust began rusting badly after 1 year.

Thanks, Al!  You're right....Best anything is, well, quite subjective. haha

I will be sure to update my sig with the exact details on the Bronco once she arrives from Cali.  My husband and brother flew out there to check it out for me...They got somewhat of a guy's trip out of it, and somebody had to stay home to take care of the dogs!  0:)   I'm told she will be here early next week. Fingers crossed!

I appreciate the tip on the KYBs, and the feedback about Bilstein!
