    I got my shocks for the front on Friday finally and installed them yesterday. The truck rides so much smoother now and it lifted the truck back up another 1" in the front (more than likely because my old shocks were the stock ones and SHOT!). Enough rambling, here's some slutty pictures:


    And a poor attempt at "flexing" since my snow tires are about wore out and the snow is slick right now, lol:


    Tomorrow I should be getting the racks for the topper, and I am hoping next week they will ship out my old man cab visor, lol. Just got a hospital bill in the mail for a little over $600 so I will have to put the rest of my mods on hold for a month or so to get that paid off. Anyway, let me know what you think!

    Looks good, but I bet the ride is much better now.

    The ride is like when it was new (or new to me anyway). It's fantastic!

    Your truck is looking great. I sure like the tow mirrors, I want some!

    I got my Yakima bars for the topper yesterday. Might install them after work today.

    Looks great. A high end shock will renew the feel of a truck. Combine that with new tires and a front end alignment and it is like driving a new truck!!!

    Hey guys trucks look good. I was looking to get some bilstein shocks. I see and have heard that they have some ride height adjustable shocks. I have a 2005 Z71 and am having trouble finding some that say they are ride height adjustable for my year truck. Do they in fact make those and if so for my truck? where can i find them?

    It's amazing what a new set of shocks can do for a truck. I have Bilsteins on my truck as well, well worth the investment.
