shocks
 
What shocks are the best for a 2004 f150 with 2in leveling kit on 33s? please give full name of shocks or shock serial number please and thank you

the best would be some King's or Fox racing shocks, but that's only if you want to spend some money. Bilstein is a well liked company. sorry i don't have any specific numbers or models though.

yeah if you call up king and tell them how much the truck is lifted, etc. they will make a set of coilovers for the front and shocks for the rear.

actually they are adjustible so you could take out the leveling kit and just turn up the king coilovers a couple inches for the same lift.

I would go with the kings. That's what I have on my truck. And damn are they nice. I love them I would never go back to anything else.

i only have 2in leveling kit would coilover work in front but i would have to use bypass in the rear leaf spring and shock gap is to small

lets go offroading how do u get coilovers in the rear or is truck newer/older then 2004?

I didn't put coil overs in the rear just the front and king piggy backs in the rear no coil. If you wanted to put full coil overs in the rear you would have to delete your leaf springs and put in sway bars and some arms. And leaf springs are better if you still use your truck as a truck. If your using your truck for offroading and you never put anything to heavy in the bed or tow anything then I'd so go for it but it will be expensive.
