    The question back to you is what do you do with your truck. Or intend to do with it.
    Off roading? loaded work duty? just run around town errands? Lift kit?
    What size truck. 1/2, 3/4, 1.
    What have you got on it for tires. How many ply.
    Your question doesn't really have a one size fit's all answer.

    It is a 1/2 ton. I do some off roading. no lift tires will be 8 ply. I work the truck as well.

    I put the Bilstein 5100 series on my 97 K1500 Suburban and love them. They give the truck a nice controlled ride without being to firm. I never knew how big a difference a quality set of shocks could make.

    97 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 5.7L
    78 GMC High Sierra K1500
    Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go thru life.
