    Shock Recommendations

    Does anybody have any good recommendations for shocks? Something a bit firmer than the ocean liner simulators that are currently taking up space under our Aspen. I chatted with the parts manager at our local Dodge dealership and they show probably 10 different shocks for the Durango (thought I'd try some Durango replacements since it's supposed to be sportier than the Aspen) but he couldn't really tell me which shock might provide a firmer ride. I just rotated the tires and there was some chop on the front tires. The front has always felt a bit twitchy to me. Not quite as "planted" to the road as our older 99 Durango. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Unfortunately the "chop" as you call is permanent. The only fix is to replace them as well as the shocks. You should look up Bilstein for their shocks for the Aspen.

    Not totally sure about the Aspen with its added weight, but I've had pretty good luck with my Bilstein HD's. FYI, check the web as I got a buy three, get one free offer with free shipping.

    NOTE: This price was in April of 2009 during the height of the recession so I can't speak for current prices or offers. Mine were about $200 for a set of four.

    Ride wise I'm pretty impressed with the Bilsteins smooth ride and the dust boot covers the strut tower to cut down on grease, dirt and foreign objects from entering.

    +3 on the Bils.

    Stocker D shocks sorta stink (said mildly.) And FWIW, they're the SAME as you have on the Aspen. With that knowledge, find a new dealer.
