Most Comfortable Shocks???

Im sick of how my truck rides like a tank. It doesnt have a spring lift, so I dont understand why it rides soo rough.

PLEASE help me with advice as to the best riding shocks for the leaf spring trucks. Im willing to pay for any quality shock shy of super expensive external resevoir shocks.

Bilsteins or Icons..either will give you a much better ride quality compared to stock shocks. We carry both, PM me your zip if I can get you pricing.

No offense, but it might have something to do with the fact that is a 3/4 ton truck. If you aren't using it as a 3/4 ton truck enough to look past the fact that it rides rough empty, you might want to look towards a half ton.

X1000000. I've got the fancy Bilsteins on my truck. Guess what, still rides like a tank. Sure, it rides a *bit* better, but it's still gonna ride like a brick.

Really??? lol Obviously this is a given. The reason Im asking is because my truck rides abnormally rough with the cheap shocks that came with my lift. Ive ridden in other leaf spring Super Dutys that ride considerably better. Im simply asking for others experience on what shocks are best..... nothing more. I know its not gonna happen in my truck, but my dad's 06 F250 rides way better than anything Id consider as uncomfortable. If I can get relatively close to that, Id be completely happy.
