Well the stock shocks are fine for now. Whoever the guy that built it was must have had some very good shock skills because the spring rate and dampening feel phenomenal for this truck. He had the shocks set up pretty close to perfect. Think i'm gonna leave on there for a while and see how it does. They're brand new just like the rest of the truck.
