So do you notice a big difference in the ride??
Rbarrios is da' Tech guru! If there is anything you must know on a DIY use the search and "by user" to pinpoint what he has to say about it! It's ALL there - either in the enclaveforum or the traverseforum.

Recently had 7 folks in the Traverse. Along with baseball gear.
Going over some speed bumps- the rears bounced a little more than I liked.
I went ahead and ordered aftermarket this time.
Since I have Gabriel in the front- I ordered Gabriels in the rear.
The shocks I took off- Not failed. But tired and weak.
Factory shocks removed at 87,000.
The 2nd set- had about 62,xxx miles on them.

I am getting ready to replace my rear shocks at 60k. Do you think I should also include rear springs and those end link pieces?
