    Ladies and gentleman,
    I am getting a new set of shocks for myself for Christmas.
    I have heard rave reviews about the Billy 5100's and want to know if they are really worth it, how high to set them for the best ride, and what model # I need for my 02 regular cab 4X4.
    If anyone has any other comments about a favorite shock other than the Billys please let me know.
    My truck has 115000 on it, is it worth the money for the Billy's?

    Thats good news!
    What did you set the fronts to?
    Do you have any sort of lift?
    All I want is a better ride, its very slouchy right now, especially with my top (wants to roll side to side)
