well after all the reviews, I'm finally going to try out these Monroe Severe Service Shocks. I have the original DeCarbon shocks from '96 and my impala just hit 96k so I think it is time. I just was afraid to just try anything out there because my car is completely stock and all I wanted was a nice stock ride again, so based on what everybody else is saying these sound like the real deal. In case any one is wondering I bought all 4 wholesale for $80. so either way I cant go wrong.. Sorry if I forgot to post what type of shocks, but I just updated my thread, man you guys dont let nothing slide..
