    I'd go to summit put in your truck and drop and look at the suggestions. I'm running toxic shocks but not sure if i like them yet. Gonna swap front springs first. If not I'll be switching to the qa1 coilovers. Everyone seems to like nitro shocks as well. But then again if you use summits tool for recommending shocks it'll at least get you the correct lengths you'll need for your application.

    I have the kyb gas-a-justs on the back of mine. They are a good shock imo, if you want to firm up the ride. They definitely stiffened up the ride. I haven't changed the fronts but will be doing so. I installed a maxtrac 3/5 drop. I liked everything but the shocks. Way too soft when I can easily compress the shock with one hand. Lol

    How is your truck lowered? Mine is 4/6 as well. I have 2" spindles and 2"coils front and a flip kit with c-notch and shock extenders rear. Thanks!

    I just ordered the KYB Excel-G shocks for the rear of my c1500, PN 343130, from RockAuto.com. They were about $19 each there, compared with $42 for the exact same shock from O'Reilly.

    4/6 lowered, no shock extenders.
