    Default Nother Stupid Suspention Question

    Ok so i am pretty sure that i just have leaf spring lift on my truck. Ya its cool ya its nice (w/e), but its bumpy as hell. I was looking at some suspension lifts with all the brace goodies ect...... Well i was wondering on some trucks i see huge springs on them near the tires. then i see there shocks. Is that kind of like coilovers for trucks or something a long those lines? Remeber i come from a Car hahaha. But ya i was looking on making my ride smoother while driving. Any sugestions?


    sorry i am very new at truck......

    Air ride would be mainly used for leveling your load when towing, hauling, camper, but it won't take the stiffness out of those 2500HD springs. Better shocks with help it not be so bouncy. Bilstein's would be the best choice.

    agreed, a nice new set of shocks will help you out dramatically. I would recommend the Bilstein 5100 or the Rancho RS9000X. I had the ranchos on my truck and they rode like a cadillac.
