did you get some limit straps to go with them too ?
they are important to the life of the shocks by not allowing them to bottom out, which is also hard on the CV's,

Thanks for the comments guys.
The truck looks awesome! I was gonna ask about that. What coil rate are you running?

I have them but haven't put them on yet. They are the ones that came with the superlift kit. Problem is, sizing them up to where they are "recommended to go" doesn't give me ANY articulation. So I need to try and figure that out tomorrow when my leafs come in.

Give me a min and I'll pull the exact specs on them

Had to, not only did they not clear the coils, but they didn't allow any upward travel from where the truck sits when it's level. Haven't really planned on where to put it yet, considering I hate to completely take off both mounts.

say what? for the cvs i agree but i cant see it ruing the shocks. unless it was extremely abused.

i dont have any of that stuff on my rig and they have over stretched and bottomed out hundreds of times.

I was gonna say that, the control arms would limit the amount of travel well before the shocks would ever come close to bottoming out
