Default Strut Upgrade Recommendations??

So my front struts are leaking and need replaced, along with my cv's and tie rods. looking to upgrade considering i have to replace anyways. any recommendations on brand/style to use? website links would be great too. i have a 6 inch procomp susp lift as well so anything that is compatible for better performance would be great. truck is a 07 1500 4x4. thanks.

I would recommend going with the Bilstein 5100s on your truck. I say this becuase they are a wicked shock and they can raise the front end of your truck. You already have a 6" lift I know but you can use them to get more out of the truck. I currently have the Fabtech 6" kit and I have the Bilsteins underneath the front still since I used them to level the truck before. I have them set to 0" right now but next week I will be using them to lift the front another 1.5". It is just a thought if you ever think you want t raise it some more. The first setting on them is about .5" so you can even use them for a small lift up front. Did I mention that they are a great shock??

You can go to any site really to see them. I use Essex (company name) to search for them to see what you use, it is a Canadian site though.

Also Procomp makes a coilover kit for the front of the truck. You can use that to really up the performance of the truck and to give it a cool look. they might be a little expensive though that is the only thing. Also you can usually use the coilovers to get some more lift out of the front as well

Since your looking for some better performance out of your suspension here are a couple other things you might want to take a look at. Fabtech makes a dual steering stablizer kit for the 07 Ram. I installed them on my truck and I really like them, make bigger tires handle great on the truck. I believe BDS also makes a kit as well. There is also ladder bars which will help the rear control better. The guys who make them are Procomp and also BDS. These are some inexpensive ways to help the truck drive and handle better. You can also look at some sway bars to help with the body roll, I think Hotchkins and Hellwig make some for the Ram
