Anybody used these yet? I can get these cheaper than most as I have an inside line on em. Anybody used em yet? They look sweet and can level out your ride just like the bilsteins. ----------------Kyle

My experience with Pro Comp shocks is not good.

I put a set on the front of my 2003 Avalanche and within 4 months one was leaking and making noise. It quieted down after another few months but I should of replaced them. The old bilstiens that were on it rode a lot better until one gave it up and lost all the shock oil.

My vote is spend the extra few dollars and get quality shocks. Sometimes cheap ends up costing more.

They look nice, but same price as Bilsteins...

I found the bilsteins for 197 shipped at eshocks.com

They will be here today! :D

The shocks I put on my old truck were not the ES3000. they were the 9000 series and cost more than a 5000 series rancho. The only reason I went with the Pro Comps over the cheaper Ranchos is that Ranchos have a rougher ride. I had read good reviews on the ES9000's so I went with them. Looking back, I would of been happier with a different shock.

As far as how they look, the ones you linked look like a great shock in the picture (as did the ES90000. Unfortunately its only on the inside that counts. Give me a great shock, paint it black and I wont question it.

No offense but anything rancho is junk either way and es9000s from pro comp are junk as well. I have experience with them all actually. I talked to my brother who installs the pro comp pro runners and he said the ride is excellent and I think I will eventually think about buying some of em. Pro comp has done their homework on these. Yes the bilsteins are probably better honestly as bilsteins are just a better shock and always have been. Their bottom line shocks blow away the pro comp and rancho brands. I know from my experiences in rockcrawling all these years, but I can say these pro runners do seem really nice.

Everywhere I have seen the adjustable ProComps, they have been higher than the Bilsteins. With ProComps reviews on here and every other forum there is no way I would spend more on ProComps over any other shock on the market.
