Need help looking to get a new set of shocks for my 02 Frontier 4x4. I'm choosing between the KYB GR2 or the gas a just shocks. Is there a big difference between the two of these shocks? I mainly drive highway and city streets no off-road. I'm just looking to get a shock like stock or a little better. The gas a just shocks are about $20 more on rockauto, and seem to be a better shock. Is it worth spending the extra money for the gas a just for normal driving?

KYB is the OEM supplier of your truck's shocks from the factory. The GR2 is practically a direct replacement. If you want performance similar to what was on the truck when it was brand new, the GR2 will work just fine. The Gas-a-justs are a monotube design shock absorber and a step up from the GR2. They offer better performance and a slightly more aggressive ride. For a more detailed explanation of the differences of twin-tube and monotube shocks, check out this article:
