    Hello everybody, so I wanted to get some good recommendations on what shocks to buy, I have a Fabtech 3.5in lift and the rear shocks are killing me offroad and just a little bit on road too, I think its time to definately replace them. If anybody could help me out that would be great, and also I am looking for a a good shock that wont cost me my next paycheck.
    Thanks

    I offroad quite a bit because I live so close to the trails, and the terrain is quite rocky majority of the time, also I do go to moab every now and then.

    There is no possible way on earth on getting decent shocks (or any shocks) with a budget of $120..

    Around $26,000 worth of unleaded in the fuel tank.
    Tockico makes good shocks, but the basic set is like $250.

    yea most people on here run bilsteins and they love them. i would say call the people at downsouthmotorsports.com and they should be able to tell you what shock will work for you
