What are you looking for? A stock ride or heavy duties?

i gought mine from summit racing. they fit like a boss... i have cranked T bars with no issues.. look for them at summitracing.com or just call them so you get the right ones.. and get the 5100's if you can they keep the dirt out better. and make sure they know its for a 4x4 cause the 4x2 shocks are alot shorter
