I know you get what you pay for but man those Bilsteins are expensive. Anybody know where to get some for cheap or some cheaper shocks with similar performance?

Cheapest place I've seen the bilstiens is shox.com....and btw, it should be the last set of shocks you would need to buy, lifetime guarantee. Definatley worth the $$, the quality is just outstanding. Order a set, and you'll see what I mean.

I dont think you are going to find Bilsteins cheaper that the $260-270 range. They are worth saving up for. If you are completely against it, then look into the monroe severe service shocks. There is a long post all about them and prices in this section. Just do a search by the name. I know those are significantly cheaper than the Bils.
If you decide on the Bils, look into getting the firm (sport) 1104/0929 Bilsteins.

The Monroe severe Service Shocks are good. $160 for four at Advance Auto. Need to special order but delivery is like 2 days. Lifetime warranty at Advance Auto. Only a 1 yr warranty at NAPA and some other places. #'s are 550012/550013.

the 1104/0929's are the sport shocks. thats what i run. They're stiffer than the HD's. they made a major difference in my ride and handling. i think they were worth it even though i dont know how the monroe shocks handle. I like my bilsteins a lot though. you wont be disappointed

Dittos on the Sport Shocks on my Fleetwood.
I did the SS springs, BRM? lower rear arms, HO sway bars and the Bilsteins. What a difference, and still with a good ride!
