ride quality with mx6r shocks help

Got another question I have a pro comp 6.5 inch lift and I'm running pro comp dual mx6r shock up front that are adjustable and I can't find a good setting they are just so stiff. Does anybody have any experience with these and how would they compair to a fox shock it was hard because its not like I could of tried both out. I just liked how the mx6r were adjustable or should I have went with fox. Any info would help. Thanks

the fox shoes would ride a lot better... when you got the mx6R did you make sure you got the ones meant for dual applications... i know they are valved differently...

So the fox will give a better ride even running dual's in the front. And if so this is going to suck

Bilstiens are good too. Uh... thinking thinking thinking trucks are susposed to ride like trucks. I wouldn't expect to get a Cadillac ride from our trucks.

I'de say use big name shocks. Like King, Fox, Bilstien. I know the CC/LB trucks like to hop. Dads truck is like that but he has a leveling kit and dual 7100 bilstiens with resivor. If you want to get lazy you can just let air out of the tires. This happened to me. Got new wheels and tires for the work truck and it rode soooooo smooth. Well a week of driving something didn't seem right so I checked the psi and it was at 40psi. The tires are E rated and can handle up to 80psi but I took them up to 70psi and now it rides rougher.

IMHO, if you really want a softer ride up front, better money spent doing a coilover conversion.
