    Next time you drive over a speedbump, see if the rear end "jumps" over it... if so, you've basically extended the rear shocks to their limit... do you NEED new ones? Only if you don't want that bounce / jump... :D

    well i did the speed bump test and it wasnt really a hop more of a BANG when the rear came down. i think the shocks are just fully extended(or close to it) but im not sure what size i should use. do u think prerunner shock will work? im tryin to get bilies lemme kno :D
