just feels weird cuz the alignment isnt done...i have needed one badly before the lift just never got around to it. i don't drive the truck too much so i wasnt worried
But any opinion to do to the front once i put the new rear shocks in or should i leave it alone

If it needs it sure replace them. You just need stock sized shocks.

i dnt think i got springs in the front because of the torsion bars....think its straight up shock from what i can see. but i dont know if i should replace them with new ones seeing as how i cranked the bars and im not sure if the rear shocks will fit in the front....clueless
