fyi, gabriel makes many store-brand shocks, but you'll pay as much for a crummy pair installed as you will to get the best bilstiens and do it yourself. ....K
I installed the crummy Gabriels myself and saved even more. Just finished today. Have to do valve adjust etc. before test drive. Now that I know how to shock change and cause of the modifications I made (see my previous post) they can be changed with minimum PIA.

Teachers get paid SHIAT in this county and Substitute Teachers get paid even worse, so it was Gabrials or.... ahhh Gabrials LOL. The OEM's were so bad their was ZILCH compression left in the rear ones. So the shocks HAD to be changed and Gab's is all I could afford when adding in the brake parts(disk and pads), wheel bearings and other things I got to do to get this thing road worthy. All with own labor.
