I bought a used 2006 t with a 6" pro comp stage 1 lift and am wondering if the front shocks are the same size as the stock shocks. My real interest is whether or not a Bilstein HD shock is a good replacement.

I only have 35k miles on the truck and am a bit surprised the PC shocks haven't last longer. Anyone else surprised?

thanks!

the pro comp stocks are just stickered as pro comp. They are the same low grade stocks as many other brands-thats in the rear. FOr the front, they probably are the stock shocks. stock ranchos or stock shocks suck for most people.

Yes, the Bilsteins would be better than what you have on there now.

Ah ha, that explains a lot.

Do know which Bilstein's are recommended for use in the rear with the PC lift? I have a 3" spacer that lifts the leaf springs up from the axle.

For the rear i guess they say use the 5100's. (the silver ones) Order them from PRG Products and they will come ready to fit the mounts.

Dump the PC spacers and get full length adjustable coilovers instead of redoing the stock coils, it'll ride 1000% better, run what you got now and save for both fronts and rears in one shot... Afterwards, you'll be asking yourself why you waited so long to swap them out too... I did... ;)

Interesting thought, but I have no knowledge of the details of this approach. How much do you estimate it would cost? :confused:

Hit up PRGproducts.com or hit up [email protected] They are just two sources to point you in that direction... I have Sway A Way combo, coilovers and reservoir rear shocks, and recommend them (purchased from PRG)... not sure what the current prices are, but they will be around 1k more or less depending on name, SAW, FOX, KING, etc. etc. etc...
