Load Assist Shocks

I was playing online this morning and came across these Gabriel Load Assisting Shocks. The reviews arent bad but i would have to guess that it would cause the truck to run much rougher. I was curious what yall thoughts of them were. Personally i thought that they probably wouldnt be to bad if i was to remove one of the leafs out the spring pack in the rear and replace the shocks with these.

Thoughts?

Why not get an Add a Leaf kit on summit for $55? Much more functional. And will help re arch your leaf pack too.

It was just something i came across and was wondering if anybody rean them in the rear and how they looked them? Figured if the springs had some sag to them and i needed shocks to begin with this these might be a good option.

I had the Monroe version on my truck for years. They weren't too bad. Worked as advertised.
