Yes...Crew Cabs...I think you probably have 1200 lbs more truck with your 6-1/2' Platinum.

This all has me thinking because mine on stock rides like absolute caca and I don't know how to fix it. Thinking Bilsteins will be too firm.
I agree....The 35" E-Rated tires don't help the ride on mine either. In pot hole season like it is now though I'm glad I have them.

I've considered looking into having them re valved for a better ride, but are living with them for now.

The handling with them is fantastic almost no body roll.

i agree with you. I noticed my friend with the same truck as mine but 4-door rides so much better, even with the stock crappy shocks/struts. Iíll probably try calling fox racing and see what they tell me. I might call Viking as well

Did you ever figure out how to make your truck not ride like caca?
