The best mod I've ever done

Paid my truck off, damn it feels good.

I haven't been online in awhile, been super busy, glad to be back. Plan for the truck now is it need shocks. Im thinking Bilstein(don't know witch ones yet) cause the SL lift shocks suck and are cupping my tires. Then I have to get new tires, Ill be lucky to get another year out of my MTs.

Ill start looking at shocks in a few months, too hot outside to work on the truck.

Anyways, whats new here? Anyone give me a link to shocks that will work, I only have about 2 1/4in suspension lift.

Agreed, it's ridiculous that people have lives and jobs outside of this forum. WTF guys. Get your priorities straight!!!!!

Congrats on getting the truck paid off, I'm thankful I never had to deal with car payments

Alot of the pnw guys got sick of the drama and childless that tends to come. Shames truck has changed a little bit too.


Any how as for your shocks, bilstien 5150's would be one of your better bets. Not sure on travel lengths, but bilstien has great customer service reps that actually know the product and not just the part number. Call em up.

Yeah pretty much all the big posters from pre-2007 have left. Sucks, lots of great minds that we lost.

Yeah, some Bilstein shocks will work as a replacement, but will require a couple modifications. I'm on my phone, but will post the info. later.

Glad to see you are back.
