    Default adjustable rear shocks

    so my truck is lowered with what i think is a 2/4 drop and im running 295/50/16 for tires which should give me awsome traction... but the rear suspension is too stiff and from a stop when i stand into it, ill just burn-out for about 30-40 feet. i have tried removing the helper springs which seemed to help at first then i realized that i only had about 2 inches of travel between the axle and the bump stops. which leads me into spending $300 or so on a set of adjustable shocks. i figure this is my only other affordable option, but my problem is what shocks to get....

    The Adjustable Shocks from QA1 are ones you might want to take a look at....I will said that they are Pricey, But I wouldn't mind having them on my Truck.
