Thank me when you put them on. It only takes about five minutes so get out there and do it!
I have to say though, that Bill Harper is the one that brought them to my attention. I just let everyone know how good they were. :cool:

Price is good. You could have gotten them cheaper, but it's not like we are talking big bucks here...

Yep you'll like them. I had those damn things in my trunk for like a month and didn't put them on. I just got fed up of seeing them everytime I went grocery shopping and the bags in the back. Put 'em on. Every time you'll go around a corner really fast you'll be shouting Wayne and Bill's names out the window! :D :cool:

Wayne, I read your old post, but I can't figure out if the ZQ8's can be used on the back? I do have a 2001 S10 Xtreme. As you may know, it has the ZQ8 suspension. I'll look on it to see what it has on the back. I do know it has the third shock, but it also has leaf springs. I don't think the third shock would even apply to the B-body rear suspension. I assume that two bump stops are needed for the front. And if the stops can be used on the back, then two more for the rear? If ZQ8's can be used at all for corners, are the front & the rear different or the same? Can you give the PN again just to make sure I get the right ones? Thanks for your help, Shimaze

It's in my original post, but the ZQ8s are front only. I'm looking into a rear ZQ8 style rear, but have not gotten far yet.

PN is 15956547 for the ZQ8 bump stop. 2 required. Pictures in my original post.

AHh.. SO from my readings the car is always sitting on its bumpstops.

They install by just finger screwing them onto the lower arm? Or are they bolted on?

I need this and the body bushings. The pala feels like a junk box when it goes over bumps... Its a very harsh ride. Well that.. and shocks.. Maybe swaybar Endlinks..

Effing car Sqeaks upfront.

Here's a pic of the left ZQ8 under full load and 2" drop in front. They wull not make contact with upper A-arm if you are running stock springs/stock ride height. They bolt on in a matter of minutes. I shaved mine a bit to minimize compression. They make a HUGE difference in how the car feels over bumps and hits. They absorb quite a bit of road shock. Good bang for your buck suspension mod.
