Re: need shocks but dont now wat to get

Get a measureing tape and take a measurer at ride hight,full drop and full stuff. Both the last two can be done by lifting one wheel till the other just comes off the ground then you have both but do it on both sides just to make shure. The call the shock company and those measurments with the weight of that end of the truck thay will be able to give you the right shocks.
