    6 inch Pro Comp lift kit, 18" XD Monster rims, 285/65/18 Nitto Trail Grapplers, Smittybilt black step bars
    I had a 6" pro comp lift kit put on my truck before i joined this forum to find the other ways to lift my truck. I dont do a ton of off roadin in this truck i try to use other toys when i go muddin and crawlin to have fun. Since i installed the 6 inch kit the rear of the truck is extremely stiff!!!!!! i hit bumps and the whole truck jumps.

    Would installing new rear resi shocks improve the ride quality of am i completely out of luck for getting the ride quality back until the rear leafs get worn out ?? Im looking to improve this in anyway i can, the front is still comfortable. I have heard great things about billies, fox, and icon but i dont know which if any would help. :help::help::help:

    k9cop, if you're thinking you're going to have a smooth ride with the expos, you might be wrong...iirc, some of the peeps running expos say the ride is very stiff...unless there's a load on your bed...ie a cap, or carry shit on a daily basis...I don't know what your intentions are for the expos, and someone with expos might chime in and give me a jab saying they're a super sweet ride...i don't have them, but i believe that's what i've read around here..research it.

    just install my expo and wow what a lift:). weight wise i have a cap on (damn shit is heavy) and it really doesnt help out the ride. its stiff but then again i have a 00yota sr5 V6 4x4 if this makes any difference. i got the expo because of camping/fish/hunting. like markmatters said it will be stiff if you dont got heavy stuff back there. i recommand the 3 inch if u dont plan to load heavy stuff
