    Hey guys!

    I gotta get some shocks for my truck, but I need some advice.

    The truck is mostly used for towing and DDing, but occasionally I play with it in mud pits and so on. What type of shocks should I get? Just some good ol Canadian Tire (think pepboys on crack!) specials, or should I get something nicer?

    My truck also possibly may have a slight lift. I am not sure. The front shock needs to be 16" long when the truck is just sitting still on level ground, and the rear shocks need to be 21.5" long.

    Will stock shocks even fit this thing? I am not sure what length stock shocks are, or what the difference between my length and stock length may be.

    Thanks for any info you may have!

    Russell

    TTT

    Anyone got a stock height 3/4 ton truck they can measure, or lemme know the best way to figure out my own measurements? I did a search like 10 pages deep and I didn't find anything useful.
