    I wanted to get your guys opinions on brands of shock absorbers and what you think about them? I got a 2005 Silverado 1500 4x4. Thank you for the help!

    I use SkyJacker Hydro 7000 shocks and love them. They work great.

    Now I know certain or quite a few shocks require you have a minimum lift of oh say like 4 inches. I bought a leveling kit havent put it on yet will when I get my wheels and tires so I only have to do 1 alignment. The leveling kit I bought uses shock mount extensions so im pretty much looking for stock height but better quality shock. Thanks for your insight!:great:

    Bilsteins are very popular and good shocks. for stock and lifted applications

    Thats what I think im going to end up with is Bilsteins my dad loved them on his 1996 Turbo Diesel Suburban(<- Previous) Now he was telling me he's gonna get them again for his 2005 Duramax along with a Banks Power Pack. But thank you guys for the insight I need to get rolling on my truck so far I've ordered everything I wanted and havent put a darn thing on yet.

    When you install your leveling kit I'd be interested to see how the shock extensions work out because all the kits I've seen only require the extensions on the 2500's.

    When I get around to it or I should say when my tax return comes in and I go get my wheels and tires and then install it all at once I will take pictures and let you know the outcome.

    Now when you say you havent noticed anything different. Do you mean as far as ride quality or the height of the truck? Im interested to know because I still havent done mine and all opinions are a plus. Thanks!
