Default Nivomat shock swap for OEM kit replacement Bilsteins this is a misunderstood system

Has any converted there GMC with the Nivomat rear shocks to a aftermarket system? I just canít see paying $400.00+ for just one shock! After a lot of research I found Bilstein makes a conversation kit that consists of 2 Bilstein 4600 shocks and springs to eliminate the overpriced OEM system! Itís available for around $300 for The Whole kit VS over $800.00 for 2 of the OEM shocks! Has anyone here used this kit or done it separately? I was thinking of getting the Bilstein 5100s and the Springs separately since I put 5100s on the front! To balance the front and back with the same technology! The kit is
Some people think the Nivomat shocks are the same as the auto ride but itís completely different these have internal pumps that donít need air or power thereís nothing connected to the shocks itís all done internally! They are about the size of a air shock, before I spend the money on the conversation I was hoping someone can tell me how it rides? The fronts made a world of difference but apparently without changing the springs and just putting regular shocks on the back the dampening will be all out of wack! And make the problem worse!

All the details are on the Bilstein site about why the kit is needed to get rid it the Over priced OEM Self Leveling Shocks I just canít see spending that much for shocks I just rebuilt the entire front end! Now one of the Nivomats is bad and is causing a sailboat effect I feel like Iím driving ontop of a water bed!
