Default Softest shock available.

I have tried sensa track, 20.00 gabriels but i'm trying to find the ride id like if possible. I just want the softest shocks for now since i drive my kids around a lot. I know it's got leaf springs and guys here at autozone try to say shocks have no affect on how smooth the ride is, I don't belive it lol. I know the cheap gabriels felt like i put two steal rods and removed the shocks it was so rough so i'm trying to find something almost spongy if possible. Thanks ahead of time.

Default Figured it out so far.

I'm slow sometimes lol. I have read if you want a smoother ride to use the weak twin tube shocks. I am going to try this next week since I can return the shocks if too spongy. Can't wait to see the results lol.

so what ended up happening here? im about to change my shocks and i dont want anything rock hard either. i dont do heavy hauling just bulky stuff so i dont need them to be able to handle the weight of 6 elephants, a giraffe, and the train-car they rode in on - they just have to be confortable and get the job done.

I read reviews on Blistein shocks and most were all good. Don't get Monroe, they are complete garbage and your truck will ride rough. You can order Blistein shocks from Summit Racing.
