Don't forget King/Sway Away/Radflo... lots of options.

if you are looking to improve your ride quality get rid of the spacer lift.

if you have the money go w/ a set of race style coilovers: King, Icon, Fox, SAW

stay away from the toytec crap

Search. SearchSearchSearch.

The short version is: adjustable C/Os from race companies are the top tier of bolt-on applications.

Then you have replacement springs and shocks, such as Bilstein/Eibach/OME.

Everything below that, I wouldn't let touch my truck.

He said Bilstein and OME are two of the top three shocks available... above King, Fox, etc. Which is not the truth. The guy who answered should not have answered, because he does not know enough to give an answer or claim who is best or "top 3" shock manufacturers.

More common may have been a more appropriate term vs. top 3 but the other comment was just uncalled for and completely irrelevant...

Up for interpretation guys. Could have meant Top Performance, or could have meant Top Sellers. Either way, they are all good suggestions. Just need to narrow down what is best for the OP depending on situation (performance, budget, needs, etc).
