    I did my 52" swap. Now I need to get some shocks. I'm thinking of the Bilstein 5125 and more likely the 5150. with the 5150 there are 3 valving options. How do I decide which one? Or, do you guys have a better shock I should try?

    yeah, if you're going to spend $100/shock... I don't think there are many better than Polys BBCS-15. It was specifically made for apps like ours.
