    So i finally got my new shocks ordered. After much research i decided on the Bilsteins. i think i got a good deal from autopartswharehouse.com. i bought all 4 for $290. can't wait to get them on and see how much the ride improves. :sign0011:

    Hey man let me know how it ride's because adding different shock's is another thing i might do to my truck also since Rough Country's shocks pretty much are garbage but other than that i love the lift.

    Which Bilstein's did you decide on? the 5100s or the HDs?

    I am replacing the originals after 66,000 miles. doesn't seem like a lot of miles be4 the shocks started leaking but i think whoever owned the truck be4 me was pretty hard on it. they look like the same size as the oems when compared side by side so they should fit nicely.
