ive heard good and bad about those, i myself have belltech nitros and love them

however with a 2/3 drop you can get away with stock shocks, unless you really feel you need new shocks

Well, the front of my truck feels fine, but the back seems more bouncy, like the rear shocks arent working. Dunno, I might be paranoid. I always am after big upgrades.

hahaha, ever since day one my rear end has been more bouncy, i think it just comes with the lowering

however a good set of adjustable air shocks will help

Well, if it is going to be bouncy, then I will just leave it. I wish i could kind of get the ride that my friends lowered civic had. It was a firm ride, yet still comfortable.

i know what you mean man, but welcome to the word of trucks, its very hard to get that stiff of a suspension, unless you really drop it down

If u decide to go any lower I have the Toxic 4" drop front shocks that id sell to ya for half of wut anywhere else (about $40) would want. I ordered 4 new shocks and the rear ones fit fine but surprise, suprise the front ones didnt fit b/c the shocks were designed to be used with the control arm drop for the ranger. Lemme know if ur interested.
