Okay so im looking to buy a set of reservoir shocks for the front shock hoops, there are alot of diffrent ones to choose from, fox, pro comp, sway away, race runner, rcd, blisteins almost every one makes one, which one is about the best for the money and going to not need to be replaced alot.

Unless your running some kind of long travel and or your truck is going to be worked at high speeds off road. Just buy whatever is the cheapest. But that just my two cents. The whole reason for a res is to cool the oil down and have more oil for when shocks are getting worked hard.

I have Foxs and I love them, however Jason is right, you don't NEED them....if you're going for a cool look get the dual shock hoops and some Bilstein 5100's, they are aluminum bodies so they'd look cool, but alot cheaper :D:D

Sway away and race runner are the same thing

I like my fox's, they work just fine

If you are looking for the cheapestm I would get the procomps or fabtechs

Yup Sway Away being the company and Racerunner being the title for their line of shocks.

Give Stuart at Vintage and High Performance a call once you have an idea what you want at (714) 815-9661. His price for mine where cheaper than all the other Pirate pricing I got by quite a bit(for mine it was about $100/shock savings). He also does free shipping.

Not sure what all he's bought in with, SAW's are what he advertises for so I assume his cost on them is the lowest.
