No clue. I put these on right away. But I can tell you it rides so much better compared to before lift even with an add a leaf.

I still love them.

I did end up putting 1.5Ē bora spacers on. When off reading, the rear articulation was causing the tire to rub on the shock body. I didnít want to ruin the shock and do not want to replace my wheels until these tires wear out.

I found a full set of fronts with springs and rears for $669. I would be willing to pay that for high quality rear shocks lol. The thing is i was told that the front coilovers dont use the same mounting setup as the regular F150 shock so they wont swap. I need to come down from 6" to 4" of lift and then the rears would work. I am wondering about my 35s rubbing when i come down. A lot to consider moving forward.

I didn't mess around with the front's. That seemed way more complicated than it was worth. I just purchased the BDS Fox option for 4" lifts with DSC.

Fox probably will not, but a shock shop could.

Also you can run 35's with just a level so I wouldn't worry about them not working all that much.
