    I hust had my tires rotated and shocks need replaced. Cupping the front tires. What is a good replacement shock. Not alot of offroading. Just during hunting season. Mainly asphalt to and from work. Suggestions apprieciated.

    I would just do a Bilstein 5100 and set it at whatever height you would like (Stock to 1.85" or whatever top height is). Is you would like an all around ride quality different, replacement coilover would be next on the list in my opinion.

    Hey Travis..........I agree, the Billy 5100 is a great budget minded shock with lift adjustment ability. You might want to get your alignment checked too. Good luck with everything.

    I got bilstein 5100 adj for front. Had them set at 1.5in to level out truck. Very happy with looks and performance of the shocks. Waiting on rear ones now to finish out shocks. Should be here by wens.

    Hi
    I put 5100's on the front of my 2004 and set them at the center height. What a difference! I put Billstiens on the back too. Love 'em!

    Well as everyone said 5100s are the most economical quality shock that you can get that will allow you to raise the front and level the truck for a better look.

    Too bad you're not closer. I've got some 5100s with 2016 springs that, when I get time, I'm gonna get rid of. They've only got about 7k on 'em.
