Default What shocks are best for 3" body lift?


I purchased my truck several months ago. It came with a 3" body lift, 315/70/17 BF's and factory shocks and no leveling kit in the front. It is approaching 100k miles and I was wondering what the best shock would be. Would a aftermarket shock be better since it is sitting higher. I plan to do some offroading but not much.

Your body lift has no effect on your suspension at all. If you want better shocks though, I'd go with Bilstein. They are pretty incredible.

the body lift does exactly what it says, lifts the body, lifting the body off thwe frame more then the factory inch or so, doesnt affect the suspension at all
