    they are adjustable shocks. they can be used to lift up to 2.5
    helps stiffen the ride a bit

    ^ yep but they only lift the front of the truck and I hear at the 2.5 setting the ride is a little harsh but have also heard the opposite. They are great shocks, I have them and love the ride they give me!

    They may also be used to replace the stock shocks when used at the lowest setting.
