    I Recently Perchased A Rough Country 3" Lift and I Already Have The Rough Country Leveling kit Installed. My Question Is That Can I Keep Both The Leveling Kit And The Lift On And Not Have To Go With New Front Shocks, Like This Place Told Me? They Usually Dont Know What They Are Talking About Because They Send Out Their Vihicles To Get Work Done.


    If I Do Need New Front Shocks, Which Kind Do Ya'll Prefer?

    The short answer is yes you will need new shocks. The reason is you are extending the shock out away from the body. By doing this the limiting factor of wheel articulation will be your shocks. What I mean by that is your shocks will be completely extended and "supporting" the weight of your axle.

    as aloxdaddy said, you will need new shocks. i would personally look into bilstein but you could also check out king. But whatever you do, DO NOT but rough country shocks, they are complete garbage.

    Monroe or Bilstein are my preferences. I'm currently running Bilsteins...

    hate to burst your bubble but you will do more harm then good with stacking a leveling kit with the 3" lift. you angles will be pretty much maxed out with the lift and the leveling kit will just make this worst. if you want 5" of lift your better of selling the two kits and get the 5" you will be happy with it and your truck will thank you
