Default what shocks for stock 2wd do you use?

My truck has Bilstein shocks that the previous owner put in, wondering if they may be too stiff or something, I do not see a listing for the 2wd from Bilstein.

So don't know which shocks he used.

Wondered what shocks others use on a stock height 2wd?

Thanks

Just looked again on the Bilstein site, funny when I enter 93 hardbody it says no application, but if I enter 97 the shocks come up and say 86 to 97, than click on the application button to see what other vehicles the shock fits and it says 94 to 97 ?? OK !

If you are just looking for a generic shock for a stock ride I would just go with the Monroe shocks you can find at any parts store. (Napa, Autoplus, OE, ect.)

If price isn't an issue and they area available for your truck I would go with KYB Gas Shock.

I have them on my DD at stock height, and I think it rides pretty well.

the Bilsteins are almost new, PO had just put them on, was wondering if they were not the right one's for the truck as it rides so stiff, but it's probably a combination of the low profile tires, the poly bushings, sway a way torsion bars and the shocks.

I was just curious.

Monroe 31000 Monro-Matic Plus shock -Rear
Monroe 32113 Monro-Matic Plus Shock - Front



I installed these 3 years ago. When I bought my 94 XE 2WD D21.
Work fine, no problems, good ride. Daily driver.
Not Bilsteins, but cost me $75.00 for all Four (Amazon)and about a day working in my driveway.
The shocks I replaced were originals from the factory.
Pretty much find them anywhere.. Good Value I think.
