Nice. Yea, when I just put my new shocks on 2 weeks ago, it raised up a bit, not a lot, but some.

Hey...so is it your shocks being completely extended and making the back of your truick squat so much? Is there even those superlift blocks installed back there? Looking at your side view pics again....the rear end looks very similar to mine when I was just bodylifted on 35's.

Everything from the kit is in the back EXCEPT the shocks..so that could be it.. The shocks in the back Are SHOT. i can pretty much move the bed up and down with one finger lol.

shocks alone wont do anything to your ride height.

oh, and no offense, but those shocks suck. I have them (came with my lift) and they are horrid. should have put the $60 towards something decent. better than the too short stock ones i guess though.
