Default Advantage of big bore shocks

i am looking at getting a set of ofna habao big bore shocks and wondering what difference they make?

i currently have the original shocks of the cen matrix c1 pro kit and to adjust you have to put in spacers. With the ofna shocks you have and adjusment screw does this make things easier to adjust on the car?

really i am wondering is it worth the $40 and why?

I'm not familiar with your stock shocks, but the jammin big bore's are sweet!

As far as WOW WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!!,,,,,,,no it's not THAT bigga deal, but my truck does seem to soak-up the hard landings a little better-they're pretty "plush".

The biggest thing for me is the (bottom) end-cap. It's a much better design all around; much stronger. Plus the shaft is a hair thicker = good.

I've had shim style, and threaded. To me, shims are better, just pop'm in or out. With threads, they can wander, plus to adjust you have to clean'm good first.
