I am deciding between Blistering HD or Monroe shocks? Which ones are better? Anyone have any experience with these shocks?

Thanks

No matter the car, you could not pay me enough to put Monroe shocks on it.

I might go with KYBs or Sachs in lieu of Bilstein, but not Monroe. Heck, it pains me even to type the name. ;)

I replaced what I believe were the OEM shocks with (4) Bilstein HDs a couple weeks ago at 105k miles and I must say that there is a world of difference. As others have also opined, it's a different and better car now. The clunking over sharp-edged bumps and any sized pothole is gone. The new ride is not at all rough or too firm to me and the car is much nicer to drive now. Handling also seems improved. They are a bit pricey even through Autohaus but considering I installed them it was a deal, and a learning experience to boot. No regrets whatsoever. As it has already been said here, replace them now and enjoy the ride. :)
