I found out my truck has the ZX3 suspension and while I like the ride, I have a shock change coming up in the near future...probably the next year or so. It's going to cost upwards of $800 or more. I've never rode in a truck with Bilsteins or Ranchos, but do they even compare? If there was a big difference, that would justify the difference in price, but I'm just curious if it's just hype or what?

Don't get me wrong, I like the ride! I just mean after I wear them out, whether or not I wanna go back with the same shocks. :D

how do you figure it will cost you 800? bilsteins are like 80 bucks a piece. and most likely any aftermarket will be better then any factory suspension.

At the push of a button, you can select either a firm or soft ride. I was A/Bing it with my dad's 1500HD SLE without the ZX3 and there is a noticeable difference in ride, though his truck is pushing 100K on the original shocks. I doubt it was a fair comparison.
