Shock suggestion?...Bilstein 5125 valving?
I am looking to replace the rear shocks on my truck with something softer for the road. I am have bilstein HD up front and they are OK. In back I have superlift shocks that are slow in both compression and rebound for my liking. I have the fr36s springs and chevy shackle which puts my shocks at 28" sitting normal, so I am looking for a shock around 34" extended. The bed is generally empty and I lost some tail weight when I took off the spare/hitch.
The bilstein 5125 14" travel have an extended length of 34" and come with a couple of valving options, I am leaning to 170/60. They also come in 270/56, 289/36, and 255/70. I know they are basically the same as the 5100s, but I am thinking the 170/60 valving will give a good on road ride. Anyone heard anything or have experience with them? Anyone have other suggestions for a shock that is forgiving on the road and comes in a 34" length?
