Which shock is better for a stiffer ride on my 2003
Silverado 1500, but better handling, the Monroe REFLEX or Sensatrac?
More about 'ride' is mentioned on our website here- http://www.shockwarehouse.com/site/shock_absorber_myths.cfm
Both a Reflex and a Sensatrac are a twin tube (non performance) shock design. They do the same thing, just in a different way. The Sensatrac uses a groove machined inside the tube, the Reflex has a more modern valve. The Senstracs are Monroes older design they came up with first. Both shocks can easily be pushed in and out by hand, like all twin tube shocks. Your original shocks would have been a twin tube design, so you are not really changing the suspension characteristics all that much.
