Default new shock on

well got the new shocks in and i can say they are so much better then the stocks that i had on. I have been riding my 4.5 rear drop with the stock shocks for a little while and have hated it. i love the look but would bottom out bad on big bumps. so got around to changing them over and the difference is huge. should have done this a while ago!

stock versus nitros 2's

I've heard that the drop2s are a little to soft on these trucks, curious to see what you think of them

well i have a reg cab so not as heavy but form going from being droped with stock shocks it is a hell of a lot better i was waiting to get the street performers but i bought these of a guy that had a 4/6 drop on his quad cab for 2-3 hundread miles and and they were to soft for him

i beat the hell out of them today down lots of crappy east texas road some of them hard dirt (clay) road and there not bad. i am wonder how they compare to the street performers because i have heard a lot of people say what you said that why i was going to wait but for $45 i was like ill try them out

Stang: what did you change yours to

The last person I heard this from had a 2/4.5 on an 04 with 305/40/22
They switched to the belltech street performers and was really happy with them
