    Heard conflicting stories about how the shocks are, I recently just purchased and installed the shocks on my 2011 on the lowest setting (2.5''). In my opinion the shocks are well worth it! They are a little stiffer than the factory billstein but nothing to noticable. They give you better travel than the spacer and more clearance with turning. The best thing is they are affortable and just about the same cost as the spacers!

    I purchased mine from 4 wheel parts and had them installed there as well. Wasn't sure if they would work because they didn't have any parts on file for the 2011, but there isn't any difference in the 2011 from the 2005-2010 other than some engine mods. The shock will fit anything from 2005-2011. It took the better part of the day to install and get the alignment set up. If ya get them, I'm know you will not be disappointed.
