      The longer piston housing over the OE standard ones allows for a smoother handling. Which in turn gives you performance for the top of the road capability. On the other hand I think the spring causes a bounce sensation that is very undetected unless you were traveling at high speeds like on a freeway with woops de do, roads. Although ,the best point for the Load Carrier Shocks are that while carrying max load the extra 500lb. support springs allow your load to ride at ease and your looking out your rear view straight on with no droops. A+++++

      Pros: Floats over the bad roads

      Cons: kind of bounces a little if your not carrying a load
