I'm looking to change out my shocks for some new ones and figured instead of getting factory replacements is there something better I could be throwing in there? I know Tony sells the street performance belltech shocks but I was not sure if those were to use with the springs only ? I still have the factory airbag setup set at about 31 inchs. Thanks

you can use the belltech street performance with the bags they ride better than the stock shocks. Many have done that here. jonlisaloser is one members truck I did you can pm him it rides better than the stock shocks.

I have the double adjustables....i'd recommend them definately if your keeping bags. If you go springs you can get away with the street perf Tony mentioned....just my opinion though.

DJM 1800 series shocks

its what I have on mine at the moment
How does it ride? I'm very interested in purchasing these shocks. How are you lowered - bags or springs?

DJM 4 inch lowering springs in the back as well.. It rides alright.. its nice and firm.. not back-breaking.. only thing I dont like about them is the finish that DJM uses.. starting to show surface rust after 3 years lowered

yes but if you want to cut the spring to go lower i spec out a different shock since the one for the kit i list is the uncut spring.
