5100's or?

i am very short on money right now and in the future once im in the military i will upgrade to icon's or such. but at the moment i have a 3" block/spacer lift and would like to upgrade the shocks for a little better ride. i know i can expect a whole lot with the spacer and such but is there any option to help with that. fyi it's a tough country lift

5100s for the front would be $180 and will give a much improved ride over the spacer/stock shock combo.

You can just ditch the spacer and use the 5100s to preload the springs. The difference is that the 5100 shock is designed for the stiffer spring rate, while the stock shocks are not
