I went to have those daystar blocks put on my truck and it turns out i need longer shocks for the front. which makes sense. but everyone i talked to said the stock shocks worked fine. anyone run into any problems with their stock shocks when running daystars on their truck? i get it back today so ill let you know how it turned out.

ive still got my original shocks on, even after the daystars. i havent got new shocks yet, first because these arent too bad, and second i plan on going higher so i dont want to buy 2 sets. i havent had any problems running my stock shocks with the spacers. I am a 2500 though, i dont know if that makes any difference.

it seems with the stock shocks you may lose some of your flexing ability though because they cant reach down as far. it makes sense though, because the shocks will have to reach down 2 inches more than they did before. i dont know, but if it works then i guess its fine.

I wasnt too worried about it, because there are other limiting factors also. and also because i plan on going higher soon. These were just a quick way of leveling out my truck.

but if it seems to me if the you use the stock shocks then the spring will just be compressed more with the spacers in. because the stock shocks cant reach any further than they already do.

The only thing that i can think of is maybe that its a 2500. maybe the shocks are different(longer) than the 1500? i dont know, and i seem to be the only 2500 on the board so...
