Stock to 2" lift yes. I have these shocks listed by application on my site so you do not need to worry about part numbers.

John, I'm waiting for my Bilstein order that is enroute. I have a question. After cranking up the T-bars about 1 to 1 1/2 inches, should I put some spacers in on the fronts?

It definately wouldn't hurt. I have my bars cranked about 1.5" and added 3/4" of washers to the top of my bilsteins. What a nice ride compared to stock.

ok, i priced out the bilsteins online and found they were around 250 for 4. i went to the local 4x4 shop and they have lifetime warrentied bilsteins for 550. i guess you can get a new shock anytime for any malfunction including normal wear and tear. what do you guys think? is it worth it. i plan driveing the truck for a long time, and lifting the truck down the road. i could always sell the shocks....

Your paying for 8 shocks when you only need 4 ......does that sound like a good deal to you?:cool:
