I know this has been asked probably a million times, and ive searched, but I feel like Ive gotten a bunch of different answers looking at the different topics but..

Whats the best shock to go with to replace stock shocks?

I have no lift, dont have 5th wheel or do very much pulling, just completely stock suspension. If it matters, I do have a MM2 plow that I plow with.

Also, where to get them at the best price would be nice too if anyone knows. Total suspension newb here so

All input welcome.. thanks!

Anything we carry would be OEM upgrades. Bilsteins are the most popular shock we sell for trucks and suv's.

Hey Shockguy,

I have a 2.5" lift in front and a 2" add-a-leaf in rear. I think I
need

BE5-6681-H5 for front

and

BE5-6246-H5 for rear.

Do you have those and are they right for my truck? :crazy:
Well almost, those numbers have updated:

Front: F4-BE5-6681-H7 (manufacturer back order until 10/31).

Rear: F4-BE5-6246-H6 (available)

They are $75.70 each (gross), add 5% forum discount and free shipping to the CONUS.
