Question:

I need to replace my shocks and struts on my 88 GL wagon and I know Sachs and KYB are up at the top when it comes to quality, but how do Gabriel Ultra compare? I mainly drive city and highway and very little dirt or off road, just to get to my favorite fishing spots.

I’d like to save some money with the Gabriel’s, but should I. :confused:

Basically what I am asking is, is Gabriel Utlra's a wimpy ho-hum shock or are they doable?
