    Just make sure those will serve your purpose, it would suck if you change your mind in a few months and want to get better shocks, it'd be a waste of money.

    If you can swing it financially, I would suggest getting the rear shocks as well. I put the fronts on my truck last night and drove it to work and back today. I put the rear shocks on today and the difference in ride quality between fronts only verses front and rear is night and day. A full set from DSMS ran me 299 with free shipping.

    I can understand that and by no means did it ride bad with just the front shocks. It was still an improvement over stock IMO

    Like it's stated up above, DSMS has best customer service... period. 5100's are a great buy and will serve you well.

    DSM=Amazing customer service, and 5100's are an improvement. All the way around would be better when you can. IF you can afford it later on look into Eibach coils or maybe some OME

    anyone know if they sell the all around kit(front/rear)as one? Maybe for even better price? just bought an 06, ready to do some mods, starting with lift/leveling kit. Like.... Combo kits use both an in-coil and above coil spacer to accomplish lift. By using both types of lift, these kits minimize the downsides of both designs(in-coil spacer,above coil spacer) while also gaining the benefits of both. In truth, most in-coil spacer kits – as well as adjustable “leveling shocks” like the Rancho quickLIFT or Bilstein 5100 – fit into the combo kit category.
