Waste of money...but it's your money...leave your spacer's on and buy a nice shock.

Yeah, I've been hearing that, and they are too rough from what I read... I might pass on these.... The price is nice on them, but the reviews are not.

I have the pro runners and im not seeing any issues compared to what alot of other people are saying. The ride is stiffer, but thats what i expected. I wouldnt go as far as to call it "rough". We'll see how they do through the winter. Im not dissapointed with them currently. They keep the tire on the road and you can definitaly feel that.

Is it pro comp who wont warranty it or the dealer you bought from? I had procomps on the back of my jeep and blew one wheeling about 2 montha later and the dealer replaced it no hassle

I dont see how sagging is caused by the shock? The spring is what holds up the weight of the truck, The shock is simply there to keep the spring from "bouncing" up and down. Its more of a spring stabilizer that keeps the tire on the road. I would look at your coil over to see if that is the actual problem.

I'm running those on a stock setting with my spacers. The way the perch is it actually lowered my truck, procomp said that it voided my warranty because it's not designed to be ran with other kits. I said WTF do they have settings for then. I'm throwing them in the trash probably today !

Yes I agree. If just learned that the "stock" perch weld is actually lower then let's say a OEM strut.

How much lift can I expect on the f150 with the pro comps cranked right up? It claims up to 2.75" of lift at the highest setting...

The cheapest I've seen the bilsteins 5100 adjustable's for is $138 shipped each... I was thinking of holding out for Black Friday or cyber Monday to hopefully get an even better deal... The pro comps are $104 everywhere, but I would still like to read some good solid reviews on them... Any input from pro comp ss owners???

Do not buy them.. Look at the reviews they ride ruff and they don't work with ur leveling kit, just get a normal stock sturt I'm switching mine out today!
