Size:  485.6 KB My front end is washing out and my ride comfort is non existent. Im looking for another option besides Fox 2.5 adjustable coilovers.

    Current mods:
    6" Fab Tech lift(with OEM coil overs)
    35" Federals
    Wheel spacers on OEM XLT wheels
    Fender flares

    Truck looks good but rides like crap

    HELP

    If you have strut spacers on that kit, you could get a set of bilsteins and set them to the lowest setting.

    Thanks AllWhiteEco
    I ended up getting a set of Fox2.0 from Stage 3 Performance on 15% discount. I changed the wheels/tires and it rides like a dream now. Im waiting on the new shocks to arrive now.

    Is there a reason you do not want to put matched Fox 2.0 rear shocks?

    I realize on a truck it probably isn't nearly as critical to have "matched damping" front to rear, as it would be on a motorcycle, or even my Miata. But you already have voted with your wallet for above average handling. Way above average in my opinion.

    Thanks for input everyone... I needed up going with all 4 Fox2.0 shocks... Swapped the rears out already. I'm waiting for the time off work to tackle the front
