Interesting, since I installed my SL kit with the SkyJacker 6” Leafs the rear of my truck is sssooo bouncy that it is driving me crazy.
I was thinking that maybe the shocks are my problem too, if someone as used the Billstein Shock please post your opinions.

Don't know how many miles you have on the new setup, but new shocks typically are pretty stiff for a while before they break-in. Of course, after they break in, they're on they're way to being broken down Or your springs might be too stiff.

Does anyone know if any shock including these will fit our Superlifted trucks?

P/Ns and any additional mounting hardware would be nice if anyone knows.

Trying to replace those stock superlift shocks. Didn't get the chance to buy the Fox coil over kit before it got discontinued.
