    Why are you looking to buy it as complete, it’s really simple to assemble them

    Moog is junk. I'd sooner find someone's OEM take offs and swap the shock with another Bilstein

    Maybe some 4600 and oem or moog coils. I personally have no experience with moog coils but i hear some guys run them with no problems. I personally would go with oem coils

    Check your ride height at the front end on level ground with nobody sitting in the truck. If it's within the specs then I wouldn't worry about it.

    To change the shocks you will need a spring compressor. They cost around $55 so you may want to add this into the total price of the change.

    I use Bilstein 4600 shocks all around. A front-end realignment after the work is done wouldn't hurt, either.

    You can rent a spring compressor at any local auto shop and it will be cheaper.

    Or there is a way of taking them apart without one just using your trucks weight.

    Or an auto shop should be able to put them together for you

    A guy who owns a body shop owes me for a shitty bed liner that he did. I will not see the cash back, so I might have him order these instead
