What shocks for a 2" lift?
« on: May 30, 2019, 04:23:37 PM »
Wanted to use the 5100's but Bilstein says they are for 3-4" and 'wouldn't be ideal' for a 2" lift.

What are any of you fellas with 2" lifts using?

I'm just trying to tweak the ride a little better.

Pro Comp 321502/326500 Suspension ES3000 Shocks they are for 2"-4" lift on our trucks. I have been running these for 4 months now with no problems. or you can run shock extensions with stock shocks.

Thanks for the info! Are you running a 2" lift? Whats the ride like on the Pro Comps? A shock extension? Was wondering if there wasn't such a thing - a Plan B!

front springs were replaced and are 2 1/2 lift made by Superlift put 2 1/2 blocks on back, but front was way higher.  so I had to put 4" blocks on back to level truck out. Also installed 1" body lift. Truck rides pretty stiff.
