    hey all,

    I purchased my 13 dclb used from a dealer. They claimed the previous owner had installed bilstein shocks and put a lift of some sort on, but that was about all the info they had. Im pretty new at this and before I start making this truck my own I wanted to figure out what was already on it.

    If anyone could help me identify what type/brand these shocks are and what (if any) amount of lift is already on this truck, it would help me out a lot. Thanks for any input!

    Here are pics of the driver's side front

    They look like pro comp 3" inch lift kit that 4wheelparts sells. Could be wrong tho. Wait for others to chime in. Welcome to TW

    I don't understand how people who sell these trucks are so clueless about the parts that make them. :facepalm:

    Probably because they sell entire trucks and not aftermarket parts someone stuck on them.

    I would hazard a guess they are Rancho shocks being white.

    They see these trucks and these parts all day long. I don't sell trucks or parts and I know.

    I was going to guess this as well, but i thought rancho was written in red on the shock. possibly the PO removed the labeling that had this.

    Procomp, Rancho or something else. But it's definitely not Bilstein.

    Same.

    OP, if you are keeping it, might be worthwhile to add some shock boots out back there. They are super cheap to get from Summit, ect.
