I read on Edelbrock's site they do have a lifetime warranty, but from what I was reading, it's a big ol' pain in the butt and would be easier just buying new shocks and replacing them. Here, let me find the link:

And after all this, do I really want Edelbrock shocks again after the ones I just installed in the Fall are already crappin' out? Oh yeah, I don't have the Summit receipt anymore, I don't think. They got tossed by the smarties that installed them at the dealership. $125 install down the drain. I only have the credit card statement and order history on the Summit website.
Edit: I just shot off an email to Customer Service at Summit and I'm waiting on an answer. In the meantime, reading on their site, they do do returns for warranty. But that means, me removing shocks from the truck, then sitting around waiting for new shocks to arrive. Meantime, the truck is shockless and sitting disabled, hopefully at my house. And I don't want those crappy Edelbrock shocks again.
What shocks should I get that are actually going to last? I did see some nice Bilsteins for $80ea.
