    Hey all, I am gettin shocks for christmas [​IMG][​IMG] And I am torn between the doetch tech shocks and the rs9000's . I have a feeling what you are all going to say but I want to hear it anyways [​IMG] and tell me why ! Also for a flexy 4" lift with extended ford mounts for the front should I get the shocks for a 8" lift ? THANKS !

    Even though you probably already know my opinion, I'll say it anyway - Doetsch is best!! Second only to King and Fox for quality and design, and a bit cheaper too[​IMG]

    ......And knowing is half the battle

    Depends I guess... heard good and bad about both. Doetechs got a kinda bad review from Petersen's this month, but Pugs and a lot of the desert runners love them. If you were gonna shell out the cash for 9000's I would get Bilstiens.... Otherwise kive the D.T.'s a shot. Great price on them!
