Question about dual shock kit

Well I am about to order a dual shock kit. I have a 6 inch lift on the truck and the guy I bought it from just put new regular shocks on it.

I am wondering if it is possible to get the rough country dual shock mount and run a better shock and leave the other one still on there. Like one MX 2.0 shock and the one shock that is already on there.

you could do that, but I don't think you'd be happy. I'd replace both

It would probably look funny if there was two different shocks on there. But if you do run a better shock with the older one, then it isn't probably going to work as good as it could. I would be more inclined to just run a real good single shock instead. Duals possibly could make the truck ride worse.

..........6" lift with regular shocks ...and they fit??..............if you do, at least put the same brand together on one side, one can only look at one side of the truck at a time

No they are the shocks that came with the lift. I believe they are pro comp and they are not the nicer ones. They are 4 weeks old.
