I lowered my truck 2 in the front and 4 in the rear. I want shocks to help stop the sagging when I put my 1000 cbr RR in the back. It weighs about 386lbs and i need help guys! Also should I use helper springs? Gimme feed back please.

Sounds like a job for airbags in the rear. For the frt a set of Bilsteins should fit the bill....

thanks for the reply , but the firestone bags will not fit the drastic drop! i don't think any bag system will fit unless you know of one that does. i found a site that offers the doetsch shocks for lowered trucks but i do not know if i should buy them. here is the site for all you guys who want to use their shocks for $44.95 sporttruckdirect.com

What will those shocks do about the rear end droping when your bike is loaded in the back? I thought that was an issue?

I would check out the active suspension as most other solutions will make for a stiff rear end. I just put some on and have been driving most of the day and I am greatly impressed with it. I have a 2/3 drop on my truck.

Yes The Back Does Sag When I Load My Bike! I Guess What I Want Is A Stiffer But Sturdy Ride With A Load. I Found My Solution For Now! I Will Use The Doetsch Nitro Slammers And I Just Bought A Leaf Spring Helper Set From Helwig At Jc Whitney. I Got The Set For Both Sides At $152 No Shipping. I Think This Will Do. As For The The Drop Sobe Graphics Asked , Well I Bought The Springtech 2" Up Frontand 3" Drop Leafs And Adjustable Shackles. The Shackles Have A 4-5" Adjustment For Your Preference But The 4" Is Good Enough. Thanks For The Reply's And I Will Hit You Guys Up When I Get The Hardware Installed! Oh And For You Guys Who Want To Lowere Your Titan , Doetsch Has A Kit With Shocks For The Rear For About $289! Fyi... Biospeed
