Dual Shocks

Just curious if having double front shocks would really make that much of a difference for the ride and if so should you put dual shocks on the rear as well. Thanks

In my opinion dual shocks are only necessary if your running VERY large tires and a single shock can't handle the unsprung weight.
I have the dual setup on front only because it was on the truck when i bought it. Since then I've replaced the junky fabtech shocks with Fox racing 2.0's valved for the dual setup. they work really well as my tire & wheel combo weighs approx 100lbs each

If you get correctly valved Bilstein 1 per corner is fine..exception is a Excursion which needs duals in the front IMO.

I have the duel Fabs on my front, the ride is excellent, I like the ride better then the 2 stock setup trucks I've ridden in. Absolutely no complaints.
