Do shock boots actaully do anythign? Or are there to look pretty and hold in water? Thats what they seem to do, but who knows... can somone more expereinced than myself help me out? Also, what are good numbers for shocks. I got my SX8000 shcoks in today, they seem like they would be a tad too long. I think for the front its 16" compressed all the way. And the shocks on my truck just sitting there is about 20" And for the rear the SX8000's are 20" Compressed all the way and the ones on my truck right now are 24" just sitting there. I have a feeling my new suspension will net me a little more lift. Do I need to move my shock mounts, or are the shcoks good length? Thanks!
