Bilstein shocks on a Zook ??

Has anyone ever tried or heard of Bilstein shocks on a zook ???? I could get them much cheaper than rancho one for my SPOA.

I have some friends running Bilsteins on vehicles other than Suzukis. They do run stiffer than I'd like to have on a vehicle. You might want to cinsider tilting your shock mounts over (front and rear) to soften them up a bit.

The Rancho shocks are very stiff, look for the softest shocks you can find. My Rancho 5000's ride like a tank.

Rui,
In my opinion the Bilstien's are probably a better quality shock than the Rancho's.
By changing the mounting points and tilting the shock to the side that should give you some more travel out of the shock.
