MVP090..you need to use only STOCK length shocks, if you really want better shocks, just make sure you order them for stock lift on the truck, the spindles are made to work with stock shock length extended, that keeps the coil bucket from hitting the spindle at what is called full droop, or like when your wheel falls down into a pot hole for a second, the length of the shock will stop it from hitting, if you go with a longer shock, it will hit the bucket every time.

ok that's good to know only stock length can be used. Would an aftermarket shock increase ride performance? If so I'd like to get rid or the stock shocks and get something else but I can't find anyone that makes a shock setup for the 2wd. What front shocks are you running?

yes aftermarket shocks will help a lot, with the increased valving, it makes them able to handle the weight of the bigger tires you might put on, I run Rancho 9000, they came with my kit , stock length , just stronger.

Do you have wheel spacers. I looked at CST and they say you need a rim with 5" or less bs and the stock is around 5.5 or more I was told, so I was curious as to how you got the stock wheels on with the spindle

This is directed toward Bullram. First i love ur truck, one of my favorites. Iv been looking at the cst spindles but i really dont have the money. Will the airbagit ones work. I have an 09 2wd. And i know the 08 cst spindles will work, but will the airbagit 08s work? And do u know anyone who has used them? Thanks in advance for all the advice.
