I put one on then desided that 5 maybe 6 inched till the shock bottoms out !! So I took it off, wasnt to happy !! I have a 06 Crew FX4 with a leveling kit on the front. I pull heavy trailers and over load the box often. Im sure I would bottom this shock and bend or brake something.
Your profile pic shows you loaded with a heavy load of hay. Hope your roads are better then ours around here.
same part # btw

Well if you don't go over your what your truck is allowed to carry then it's not a problem. The shocks are there to make the ride smother. Your springs are taking the weight and i'm sure your spring pack will bottom out before you bent you shocks. The load in my pick is about 14K and the springs do just fine. Same with 2 cubic yards of dirt in the back of the truck. Good luck with finding some shocks you like. It's been since early Dec. since mine where put on my truck and love every bit of them with no issues and i've put close to 10k miles on them already.
