kyb shocks

Im just about 100 percent sure im going with the kyb monomaxs after searching the forum and researching them. As i was searching i seen a few guys claim to gain a half inch of lift after installing them, i just wanted to know if this is true about the kybs. Thanks.

I just installed some kyb's on friday and I absolutely love them. When I put on the backs it did push the bed up a little but it wasn't enough to make any difference. but when I put the fronts I jacked it up to have easier access and I didn't measure it before nor after so I can't say whether it lifted it or not but I seriously doubt it did.

It sure is a great ride though

MonoMax's having such a high compression, it may or may not give you an inch. It did mine, but your ride is alot newer.

Dude that is a good deal, we sell em anywhere from $65-$80 and folks will pay that for a good performing shock, I usually sell at least 3 sets a month.
