    I’ve only seen a few posts from folks installing the bilstein b6 monotube shocks. However no mention of ride quality change.

    Anyone love/ hate or just find it unnecessary?

    I see the fronts pre assembled but not the rear. Do they have rear also?

    I am thinking about going to B6 just because of my weight.

    @NASdiesel has a comment in there that he was disappointed with the Bilsteins. B4 or the B6 upgrade monotube?

    My default will be just OE assemblies because, while soft, they have served me well off road. But anything I can get that is slightly upgraded without overly harshing the ride is great. I won't do poly bushings or anything like that, but a stronger strut that handles rough gravel roads would be great.
