    Lookin' good. I would have ordered these instead of the Bilstein HD except it said you had to have a lift in your truck
    How's the truck handling since the install?

    well cant really tell since its on the rear, but definitely firmer when i bounce on the bed with my legs and try to shake it, so hopefully when carrying loads or towing thats when theyll shine!
