Looking for replacement shocks for 2004 SSR that have a good ride. What brand is recommended? Suggestions, please?

Bilstein Touring Shocks from Simple Engineering.
These make a huge improvement in the SSR ride, Mike Moro worked with Bilstein for this SSR specific application. If you try to buy Front shocks any where else they most likely will not fit because they are made for the Trailblazer and will make the front of your SSR sit 2" higher.

I agree with @Texasbaehr , go with the Bilsteins from Simple Engineering. I’ve run both the touring and sport versions and like them both. Both versions will greatly improve the ride and handling.

And if you are thinking about lowering your R, changing your shocks is the perfect time

To be exact, it is the Bilstein "Sport" shocks that were released recently. These were the ones that I we provided a test vehicle to Bilstein Engineering in San Diego. They have a fabulous ride.

If you are wanting more of a highway cruiser ride, go with the "Touring" selection. They are the ones that were optional on the Trailblazers. I've been selling them(with slightly modified ride height for the front) for a number of years and have had great reviews.

Regards,

Mike
