After a new rear shock, choice between BGM and the targa line ones, what do people recommend?

Don't waste money on flashy shocks, I've been there. I now keep the original and if that's broke (not usually the case) get a remade one from Scoopia or a SIL Escort one from SR.

As long as it damps it's good.

Had 2 Escort shocks snap on me before.
BGM now for the past 7/8k and all still like new.
