All I've heard is a blind "THEY RULE!" so far. Info like shock length, valving, what shock they replaced, how much weight you have in the back, type of offroading you do, what other shocks you considered, what lift is on your truck (if you have one), etc etc, might help people out in deciding whether 5150s are good for them also...

Just a thought to make this thread a little more helpful...

good point. i'm getting Deaver 7-leaf leaf packs and i now need to replace my 6100's with something else. 5125's are out since they are not currently available. 5150's are available (BF5-A195-H1) for around $80-$100 each, but i'm also looking at the Doetsch Tech "MV12" shock, DT's are about half the price.

any thoughts on this?

yes, but on these shocks the compressed length is still too long for the stock shock mounts and bump stops. the shocks will bottom before the bumps stops do (info relayed from another post by Donahoe person).

however, would i ever bottom out with Deaver 7-leaf? maybe.

so i was also wanting to know, would it be better to relocate the shock mounts and perhaps go with a 10" travel 5150. 5150's dont come with the 1" offset like the 5125's do, so the reloacte would allow the same shock to be used L & R.

any thoughts on this?

well leave more feed backs as soon as i take these off-road..
