    Yes, I need to replace them all around. I would like to find some that would lift it a little more, but not nessasary

    There are several affordable choices for that. Billy 5100's are well liked and run on this board. There are adjustable in the front. The Toytec lift is also well liked and used here too. You can get a member discount also.

    Shocks don't provide lift, that is unless you have the Bilstein 5100 shocks. These provide lift for the front only. For the rear you'll need to get either blocks (not recommended), shackles, AALs or new leaf packs.

    Ok all that helps. Now just to find someone parting with theirs, or some stock one's with low miles

    Why not pick up new shocks instead of replacing them with used ones? New shocks aren't that expensive IMO.

    Or just piece them (buy fronts now, rears later) and install them together.

    Where is the cheapest place to find them? Also a sway bar...is this an add on part? Or is there already one on my truck?

    The reason I ask is my truck rocks left and right alot. I was told to replace the rear shocks first and go from there....

    Thanks for your help guys!!

    You already have a front sway bar, maybe you need to have the sway bar bushings replaced. Go to wheelersoffroad.com and pick a set up from there. That will help with the swaying along with getting new shocks, your current ones seem to be on their last legs.

    Almost forgot, if you're going to pick up the Billy 5100 shocks then pick them up from Sonny at downsouthmotorsports.com, he's got the best prices around.
