My front shocks are done. 22k miles. Dealer will replace but they will let me pay the difference for better shocks. I have no great experience with good shocks. What advice can you folks give me?

Everyone seems to like the bilstien shocks and they aren't that much either.

I thought you needed 3 or 4 inches of lift to use DR shocks.

Hey DC do you know if I can run some DR shocks if I install mini spring pack and x code springs.

I don't think so, 99-04s smallest shock is for a 3-6" lift.

The mini spring pack lifts under the stock springs, so eye to eye is the same.

If you had the eye to eye measurements off of your truck with the x-codes I could check my application guide on the compressed and extended lengths of the DR shocks and see if they will work.

I just ordered the 9000's. I am going to throw them on tomorrow. I can't take it anymore. The dealer needs the truck for 4 hours and I can do it in 1/2 hour. It isn't worth the $40 I would save if I paid the difference on the shocks.
