Shocks recommendation 2007 Quad SLT 2WD
 
I have a 2007 Ram 1500 Quad SLT with the Lone Star package 20" wheels and tires etc. I bought it used about a year ago and am ready to do a shock absorber change at 78,000 miles. In the past I have used KYB Gas Adjust shocks on my trucks. Any suggestions for the RAM? I want to keep suspension stock, its 2WD so do not plan to go off road. Its mostly in town and highway driving. Thanks

I put these on my '06 at 90K; they were great, it was a quad 2wd with the ThunderRoad package, ride hight same as the 4wd. http://www.bilsteinus.com/products/p...-trucksuv.html

Those ones will not. If your truck is 2wd you'll need to do a spacer kit or coil kit.
Bilstien adjustables are only for 06-11 4x4s
I'll be more then happy to help with any questions just need to know if your truck is 4x4 or 2wd and what direction you really wanna go

Ok I still havent gotten around to replacing the shocks on my Ram yet. I am at 95,000 miles. I have not driven the truck much in the past few months as I have a Mini Cooper I use for everyday commute. I am still leaning toward the KYB shocks front and rear. Im going to replace the front shocks first, but in looking them up on line there are several different models. I have in the past gotten KYB gas-a just and have not had any issues. Any suggestions?

To add a note, I know I am still running on original shocks. I noticed driving it to work on the highway this morning that the front end is starting to bounce and getting a slight wheel hop when I hit a bump. With the high performance tires I have on the truck I want to optimize their performance.. Im taking the truck into the dealer tomorrow for an oil change, tire rotation and balance and the 100K inspection and applicable service. I will get their recommendation for shocks, perhaps Dodge has a option to the OEM shocks. Just have to compare prices and responsiveness.
