    Hey all. I just switched out the stock 215's tires (reg cab) with 235's and wanted to get your opinions on whether or not I should switch out the stock shocks while I'm at it. It's a much smoother ride, but I can definitely feel the loss of some power/acceleration. Think it's a good idea to switch out the stock shocks?

    I think it's a good idea...but it's not going to give you any better acceleration or power, if that's what you're asking.

    If they are still good, I would say leave them.
