    Sorry, 2nd gen shocks..


    Either way. Yes tons of ppl run em. Generally its not the front that we worry about as much as its the back.

    Very popular to run these with up to 3'' lift

    According to my DSM receipt, BE5-D558-T0 are the "Front Pre-Load Adjustable" (0"-2.5" Lift) shocks, BE5-D559-T0 is the "Rear Driver Side" (0"-1.5" Lift) shock, and BE5-D560-T0 if the "Passenger Side Rear" (0"-1.5" Lift) shock.

    Why not just contact DSM? I'm sure they can answer any questions you have.
