Default Shocks for a McGaughys 2/4

Posted this elsewhere with no luck so I thought someone might have an answer here since it's gen4 specific-

My truck has the McG's 44050 kit with front spindles and rear springs with stock shocks. I was curious if anyone is running aftermarket shocks with this kit? My stock shocks are giving me wheel hop problems and I already broke one rear end because of it and don't want another one to go. Any input is helpful, thanks guys.

I have the 44051 kit on my 2012 2door with stock shocks. No issues for me with aftermarket 22" wheels on it. You have the 44050 so you have a 4-door?

Mine's a regular cab, 44050 probably the wrong part number, it's the deluxe kit I think? All I was getting at is it's the spindle kit with stock stuff up front and rear springs.

Edit- the 44050 is the spindle kit, 44051 is regular cab springs only, 44052 is crew/quad cab springs only.

I read somewhere in the lowering section of another person having the same issue. I didn't go through the entire thread, but I think this is it. I think he fixed it by making the trac bar adjustable.
