    Anyone know of a good mid-range set of shocks for an 02 4x4?
    Not trying to lift (although I wouldnt mind it)
    Possibly know of anyone who has a semi-used set??

    bilstein 5100s can go with either stock height or up to 3 inch lift i believe.

    old man emu requires about a 2 inch lift, so unless you plan to spend some more on coils and AALs, bily 5100s are your best bet i think

    Thanks guys.
    I have heard a lot of good things about Billys, but I dont know how long I am going to keep my truck.
    I dont think I want to spend a whole lot right now.
    I have heard a few people talking about selling their stock shocks when they upgrade, so I guess Ill keep my eyes open...
