    Default Shock recommendations

    Hey guys, looking to buy some new shocks for the truck. Just wanting some input / opinions. Truck is a 07 1500 Silverado classic with 38k miles. Has 2" rear shackels on it and stock 17" wheels and stock tires. I know its a truck and its going to be a bit bumpy at times. So I'm not expecting for a ride as smooth as the wifes 328i but, maybe it won't be where I feel every piece of gravel on the road. Thanks for your help.

    2012 Sierra - 5.3 Z71 - Afe cai, Rhino bedliner, 20% tint all around and 10% brow, 6k hid lows and fogs, Magnaflow catback, tinted tails and front sidemarkers.

    Bilstein, KYB, Rancho and Monroe are all good shocks in that order. I will say you get what you pay for. The high end Bilstein shocks are very pricey but they will give you a great ride and will outlast most shocks.
