Hoes are on the way, got the Deaver 8 leafs, now which rear shocks? I know about the Bilstein's 51something but they are valved stiffer than what I want. I want a comfort type rear shock. Something valved more like 170/60, any suggestions?

You can get donahoe's rear shocks, bilstein 7100's, or even some bypasses if you're that serious about it...all depends on what you want to get out of them and how deep your pockets are.

I went with the Donahoe Signature Series Reservoir Shocks and the ride great and so is the Donahoe Warranty.

What about the Bilstein 6100's valved at 180/75? They are 22.05 extended and 13.82 compressed. Would this valving be more plush versus stiff? Would these fit without going through the bed and while still maintaining l l ?

I'm running 255/70 valving in my Bil 5125's and it rides fine. But then again, I have an 05 and the truck is probably heavier than the older gens.
