Thoughts on Shock combinations, Need your thoughts please!
ok guys, my truck is in my sig below, 98K miles on the ticker with the Original OEM shocks.. truck rides like crap these days and its time for an upgrade. I've been kicking around the idea of doing a combination with the new shocks i'm going to order.. been thinking about getting Bilstein 5160's with the resivoir up front, and the 5100's for the rear... just wondering if anyone has done this, or if someone knows if it would make my truck feel uneven or awkward??
I only say this because I dont really think i need the 5160's in the rear, I dont do any off roading, my truck stays on the pavement 99.9 % of the time. i'm trying to save some $$ if i can by only having to buy one pair of 5160's Versus 2 pair.
I know its not gonna ride like a caddy cuz i'm running 37's, but after riding in my dad's 08 F350 with OEM shocks and only 60K miles, its night and day difference. this guy needs new shocks, bottomline.
If you guys dont think its worth it, i'll just do 5100's on all four corners.
Let me know what you guys think.
Thanks in advance!
