4600 are HD shocks for standard height trucks. the 5100+ are for lifted applications.

Sarahs truck ride like a tank as well, even with the 285s at 42psi its still rough (best pressure for tire wear).

I'm willing to bet he's got F150 shocks on it. My buddy Sean has a stiff ride on his 01, and he found out the P/O put F150 shocks on it.

not trying to hijack the thread. but 3" body lift is still considered stock ride height, right? since the body is the only thing being jacked up and not the susp. components.

sorta yes
COG is thrown off.. but in respects to the suspension geometry and ground clearance, yes, its considered stock ride height.
