Shock Absorber for Load Leveling Chev. Suspension Sign In

I have a 2007 Chev. Suburban LTZ, 193M miles, V8 Vortex engine, 4WD, that needs FRONT shocks replaced. Rear has a load-leveling system. I am getting mixed information from parts houses as to the aftermarket brand/type of shock to replace it with. No one is sure if they are special load-leveling shocks or not. Dealer wants $400 EACH, Parts houses ranging from $209 - $79. EXACTLY what aftermarket brand and P/N can I use to replace existing FRONT shocks?

Quick search and local price is Monroe Sensa trac thru NAPA PN# NS 39104

$119 Each (do in matched pairs no matter what)




Looks like straight forward installation but that's still pricey to me for shocks,

PS: Monroe is worth a couple more bucks than some no name IMO and are quality parts..........

There are a couple of different suspension systems available for that vehicle. They have an automatic rear only suspension and they have an automatic 4 wheel suspension. Looking at the parts estimate, it looks like if you have torsion bar suspension, you can use regular shocks but if you have coil springs, you have the expensive ones.

Suspension Strut / Shock Absorber Front Suspension Coil Spring Type 3 - Shock Absorber 19209555 $465.80 Order By Code. Torsion Bar Type 8 - Shock Absorber 88983817 $97.36 Contact dealer for most current part and price information.

He said "rear" was load leveling only so fronts should be easy............??

If it was that simple, he wouldn't be here.

I found two options thru NAPA for load leveling for this vehicle. All four wheels or just rear and for just rear it was as I posted. Is it absolutely right - who knows?
