04 2500, questions about shocks/airbags pricing and quality.
04 Dodge has towed 5th wheels and hauled overhead campers since he basically bought it. Last time he took it out I noticed how bad the shocks where with the camper on. Told him its time to upgrade from the stock setup, its to dangerous to drive it in that condition. He got quoted 1400$ from us usual mechanic for new heavy duty shocks and airbags. It comes with a full lower end fluid change, diffs and transmission. Was that a fair quote? Does the quality in shocks or airbags make a huge difference? Should I be requesting a specific brand? The overhead camper he has and the 5th wheel he pulls are both pretty **** heavy, would it be smart to go with a specific brand to accommodate the more than normal use loads?
