i bought this pair about 4 months ago for a higher lift but the extra lift never happened and thus never ran the shocks. they are still in the box.

On midsize trucks/SUVs, Bilstein recommends the 255/70 rated shocks for the front overall, and rear for "performance".


i'm currently running the same shocks, in 10" application, for my 5.5" front coils on a Dana30. so these 11" would work well for a +5.5" lift..... however, i think it's also dependent on your axle is setup, and if you want more down travel (wheel droop) or up travel (wheel tuck). from my calculations, if i put these on, i would get about 7" of droop and 4" of up travel articulation.
