Dual shock setup

Im running a 6" fabtech supsension lift with 37's and i was wondering if it would be better for the truck to run a dual shock setup. I cant help but feel like the single shock is not good for the truck. I may be totally wrong, something with more experience can probably shed some light on this. I dont have a clue what type of shocks are on the truck now but i think they are procomp. And if it is worth it and better for the truck which brand is the best bang for your buck? thanks in advance

On my 04, I had dual Bilstein 5150s valved for duals and the truck rode much better than when I had a single 5100.

I have been running Donahoe Racing duals in the front since about 07...i think lol. Not even sure if they are around anymore. Seemed like back then they were all the rage. I could not tell a difference at all, although a dang near 8000 lb truck on 8 inches and 38s isn't supposed to ride like a Cadillac so it really doesn't matter to me. In my opinion i don't think it matters a whole lot.

Shawnb, i had heard that something had happened but i really didn't care a whole lot. The shocks still work and look new, that's all i care about. But if he was convicted, then he deserves what he got.
