Bilstein vrs everything else

Car is 79 TA, eibach lowering springs,
How important is shock choice? My friend is adamant that I get Bilsteins, but is it worth the extra price? What else compares that is either european or american made?

The two applications I have driven with bilsteins shocks have a phenomenal ride quality/high speed cornering ability.

I have Bilstein's on two of the three cars I own, so I am biased in my opinion. I think they are great shocks. I have a Hotchkis valved set on my Dakota, and a sport valved set on the wifes Bravada. They may be a little more money but are worth it IMO.
Edit: I also have Eibach springs on the Dakota

For those that like a great ride and a great shock will use Bilstine, Made a different truck out of my 55 GMC with a Mll front suspension, rides smoother and doesn't feel like it is harsh when you hit a pot hole. Great product!!
