Lightbulb PLEASE recommend shocks for 02-05

I am about to level my truck and put new tires on. I am @ about 95xxx miles so I am way overdue anyway for new shocks. What brand do you guys like?

Go with Bilstein 5100's. You can level your truck out with them as well.

The Bilstein's will not level our model year truck. It only works on 06 and up. I know other's like them but I think their over priced. I know quite a few guys that run rancho shocks and really like them. Plus they have a limited lifetime warranty. They also make shocks for trucks that have leveling kits on them. The website is gorancho.com I am not a supporter or make $ off them just my .02 cents. Once I have the time to put my leveling kit on, those will be my shock choice.

Leveling kit? Why don't you just crank up your stock torsion keys. 6 or 8 turns gave me 2.25"
