    Does anybody have specs for LC100 front shock? I heard so many stories of after market front shock topping off and got destroyed in no time when used with lifted application. This include Koni and OME. I don't know about LTR and heard good things about Bilstein. I beleive this problem are due to not enough down travel

    Anybody use KYB GR2, edelbrock IAS or Monroe reflex? What do you think of them?
    So far I am leaning to Bilstein for reliability reason although the ride might be a tad too firm for my application.

    This is for 99 with no bullbar or winch yet. Front OEM bar cranked 1" and rear lifted 2" using airlift bag.

    Thanks,
    Augie

    What do you guys think of this?
    53 mm piston 70 mm body but all hydraulic with no gas to prevent cavitation.

    They are build by ArvinMeritor which owns Gabriel. Build in Canada but I could not find it in US yet.
