    Airshocks!

    after getting inspired by draggin's post i went and picked up those shocks at pepboys, 30$ each. hooked them up to my vlaves and they work great! not as fast as bags but are not too slow, i recomend anyone who is low on money after bagging the front and buying the air system to get a pair of theese. they ride pretty good also and a bunch of lift!

    hell wiht that i ride mine at 230 and they are stiff as a rock. but i get mad lift from them too, if i ever blow them i can take them back to autozone and get new ones for free,. its the cheap way out but makes it soo easy. the ones i have are gabriel hi-jackers about 50$ for 2 shocks but worth it.

    ya thats how i did it too (2 hose clamps over 3/8 hose on the shock air fitting), does your line not fit well by the shocks draggin? mine is like bent in a ushape just to get out of the shock mount and looks like it restricts air not a big deal though.

    No, none for the front. They use them for adjustability in the rear. Chances are, they're rear is lowered to much that the frame and the axle touch without them. So they use them to lift the rear to ride height when ther're driving. So, the rear of your truck has to be lowered already. You can always add them, but they won't lower the rear end alone.

    cheapest way is to monoleaf it & use 4" angled blocks. You will need an ajustable rear then.
