Default Shocks

Pretty sure my shocks are shot, when I drive on the parkway my front end bounces up and down like I have rally suspension XD any advice?

They're a pretty decent price, how are they working for you and are they shitty quality?

I just installed them this last weekend. so far so good. They are KYB, which is a quality brand.

I didn't have enough money to do them yet, so have to wait till next month, but I'll be getting the matching set: http://amzn.to/2oysu8D and replace them. You can do front and rear at different times, and the fronts were most important to me, and the rears don't seem as bad.

It depends, I'm willing to wait to save that much money. If local parts are within 10-15% I'll buy it local, but when they are 1/3rd the price? buy online and do it when the parts get in. but that's just me.
