Just installed a set of Skyjacker nitro 8000 on My Ram. They took care of the shaking I was getting when crossing bridge expansion joints on the interstate and RR crossings here in Vermont. Got them through Autoanything.com. Had them on sale, plus you get a $35 rebate from Skyjacker. Ending up paying around $120 for 4.

I have a set of Bilsteins and they are very good shocks! I have the 5100s which allow you to raise the front of the truck. I am not sure if they make it for your year or not but I will check. You get new shocks (which are awesome and allow you to have a much better ride) and a front lift.

If they do not have the 5100s for your truck then go with the HD Bilsteins. These are the same quality ride which is great!!

Yes they do make the 5100s for your truck! They make them much more lift as well. If you are looking for a raise then these would be good. Take a look it is pretty cool!

Well if you raise the front you do not have to raise the rear. The front raise will make it ride level instead of raked. So the front and rear would be the same height, rather than the front being lower then the rear.

Take a look at them and let me know what you think! If you have any other questions let me know I'll give you a hand!
