Extended front shocks...Ranchos?
 
Hey everyone, about a few months ago I leveled the front of my 2004 quad cab 4x4, and everything has been fine but I was looking at getting some extended shocks for the front because it seems as if mine top out if you hit a big enough bump... My question is, those of you who have longer shocks in front, which ones do you recommend? Also, 2 inch rear lift blocks are on order and im wondering if I should get longer rears also?? Thanks in advance everyone!

Did you put the spacer on top of your strut assembly? If so the shock did not move at all since a spacer was just put in. All you did was add some height to the strut which did not stretch out the shock. At least I know it did not on my 07 Ram when I put some Daystar spacers in the front.

If you are looking for some better shocks Rancho or Bilstein makes some good shocks. I have the Bilstein 5100s and they work great! I have not tried out the Rancho so I could not tell you about them. I love my 5100s.
