What a difference!!

Installed on my 2001 GMC Sierra with 6" lift and 35" tires. Bought to replace the ones that came with my lift. Wish I would have put them on when the lift was installed 3 years ago. What a difference in the ride and handling. Will go with Bilstein again...

I replaced the shocks that came with my lift kit for the bilsteins. Huge improvement, you can see and feel the quality. I should have gotten these when I first installed the lift

Are these specifically for the front or do they work well on the rear as well? I have a 2012 Ram 2500 with a 3" Rough Country lift and leveling springs in the front and 35" mud tires.. Gets an AWFUL ride.
