I've had Bilstein 929/1104 shocks on both my Roadmonster wagons (the 92 and the 95) if these are the soft ones thank God I didn't get the stiff ones or my a$$ would be up to my shoulders.

True the car is running on rubber bands 255/35/20 lowered on Sprint springs with Airlift bags in the rear springs set at about 5 lbs. but Dahammmmmm it is anything but squooooshy. I can count the pebbles in the road.

I believe the 1104 / 0929 combo is the stiffer of the two Bilstein choices that most people go with.

The 0929/1104 combo are the stiffest. They are linear damped. The 1516/1517 combo are progessively damped, therefore get stiffer the harder they're pushed, but have a tendency to have "highway float". This is the primary reason I chose the1104/0929 combo. You don't want the highway float. I installed them after the DeCarbons gave up the ghost at about 55,000 miles. Nice shocks. My .02
Also, much better than the original KDWS's are these Conti Extreme Contacts in our stock size of 255/50R 17. Check the pic.

Errr is it too late to get in on this? tongue.gif I desperately need new shocks - I'd go for the 0929/1104 combination.
