Got a 2K w/ ZQ8 and factory shocks. Looking for a better set of shocks. All I have seen that accomodates the ZQ8 are the Edelbrocks. Any one tried these? Like/Hate em?

(I'd consider Bilsteins or others, but no one lists apps for the ZQ8, only stock heights.) My fillings are starting to get loose. :bah:

well here is my $.02. after driving a standard 97 s10 for a year and half. and now owning a 98 ZQ8 for a year i have to say that the shocks on the ZQ8s are pretty damn good. i cant see that the edelbrocks or any others being that much better, or enough to justify paying 45 or 50 bucks a shock for a lil better ride. this is just MPO though.:thumbup:

I bought the edelbrocks and I have them on right now. that valve really does work, I was sceptical but it does work. Its a real nice ride. my only complaint is that they arnt stiff enough. not worth $290 for 4 though.
