powerstroke, period.

Bigbores are just a copy of the stock design, but with one tiny feature which i forget (other than being alum).

wow! aluminum! they look like crap but they have aluminum! wow! If you want looks go with integy, if you want the best performance, go powerstroke.

Well, as I said above in this thread, I got the Powerstrokes set for $99. I decided to go with the Powerstrokes because a) the price was better than anywhere else I've seen, b) I've heard nothing but positive things about them other than they're a little porky, c) they seem to be very tune-able (check out the Pro-Line website), and d) at $99 it makes them very price competitive with the MSR5s.

True, the MSR5s are definitely better looking IMHO, but the Powerstrokes have their own certain charm. If nothing else, when people see them, they'll know exactly what they are. :)

Take it from a guy who uses them. Nothing beats the powerstrokes. Not even the expensive Progressive shocks.

which are better? powerstrokes, ue, or gpm?
gpm shocks (most expensive)
i would only run 4 shocks so the dampeners for the powerstrokes are useless.

The ue are very good for racers, most people only run 4 of them. The powerstroke are, technically, the best shocks by far and will perform very well. As for the GPM's I don't know, but they do seem very expensive - don't know why...
