Re: How do I convince my wife...
If it's the stock shocks, then they wore out years ago... no if's, and's, or buts about it.
I'd tell her that they need to be replaced, and at the very least, that I was replacing them to get better shocks. Even brand new, stock shocks back in 83 were not worth the metal they were made from. No one cared about smooth rides in trucks back in those days, trust me. I'd also tell her that running bad shocks will cause more expeinsive replacements, such as badly worn tires etc. Tires skipping on the road not only causes adverse wear, but is a saftey hazzard as well.... anytime your tire leaves to surface of the street it's not providing traction, and or control at that tire.... this goes for steering up front, and drive and stability in the rear.
Than I'd ask her to give me my pants back, so that I could wear them. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
There are a lot of good shocks out there, it's really going to come own to what you want to spend. Bilstiens makes a good shock, but I don't know what your wife will OK as far as price goes. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
