    Default Rough ride

    Ok so I just replaced all four of my shocks to pro comp es9000 In the front and es6000 in the rear. Now before I replaced them my other shocks were completely shot and my truck would just about jump to the other lane when going over a bump. Now that I've replaced them it rides so much smoother but it's not as good of a ride as I want. Is there anything else I can do to get a smoother ride? Also are the shocks I replaced them with any good? I just want something that is smooth for riding around town but still good enough to go off road with

    With a 6" lift your never gonna have a good ride, thats just a fact of lifts. Bilstein shocks might have helped out a little better than Rancho's, they have a smoother ride.
    Also you need to make sure the shocks arent topping out due to the lift that'll affect ride quality too.
