you cant beat the price just run em and see.

if you had to buy new id rather go with kyb monomaxes, i got them for 50 each an amazon because my yukon felt like a bus when turning and towing the camper. now it doesnt tip at all. they are very controlled

There is no comparison. I wouldn't put a gabriel on an enemies car. My truck just got bilstiens at a cost of $290 for the 4 of them.
