    Complete OME kit w/ 881's and dakars. All-Pro Sliders, CB, HAM Radio and various other minor stuff.
    I'm eventually going to replace everything but for now, I'm stuck with OEM.

    My question is can I replace the rear shocks only to improve the rearend handling, namely wheelhop when hitting bumps on the road. I know that I "can" but will there be a noticable improvement even with the OEM leaves?

    For the moment, I'm only referring to the rear shocks as the front struts will be replaced when I install a lift.

    I don't think the ride quality would justify the cost of the 5100s IMO.
