    I probably will get the arnott rebuilt shocks as on my road new ones would get bad quick anyway

    But right now I am not sure yet(still price searching) given they have the lifetime warranty it may be better in the long run as my truck has over160,000 miles and I plan on getting as much as I can from it

    Ps I would do both my self as I have the room and time its just I have back pain(pinched nerve)

    Re: Shocks and Shock Absorber

    $1300 is for all 4 shocks, not just the rears and I did it myself. (the Monroe set) rides like a dream. I"ve been through 2 Arnott compressors and on from Sun something from Florida i think (stay away from that place!). After spending about 200 bucks a pop on compressors and changing them myself I finally when to dealership and just had them put a new one in. $700 all said and done. So, basically you can replace the compressor 3 times yourself for the cost of the dealership doing it once. just got fed up replacing a rebuilt every year when my original lasted 6 years...... Why buy rebuilt items? You may save you up front, generally don't last as long and if you spread it out over 3-4 years it's only like $75/year more. Doesn't make sense to me as I've been there done that......

    Well my rear shocks is the only ones that need replacing(as far as I can tell) and I haven't priced a new set of oem shocks yet(I did get a new oem compressor as I didn't want to get a rebuilt one)

    Re: Shocks and Shock Absorber

    The Arnott compressor is NOT rebuilt from my understanding only the shocks are.

    Cyco, having gone through 1 Arnott compressor within 1 year 2 weeks (Arnott did honor the 1 year warranty), when the second compressor fails I too will go the OEM compressor route.

    The rear shocks and compressor are easily a DIY project, even if the bolts are siezed they are easily accessed.
