Was running on stockers for 93k until I dropped my truck. Now I am running Doestch Tech with the DJM kit and I love them. KYB and Bilstein are also good.

i was just wondering cuz having a lowered stance usually puts more wear on the shocks and i wanted to see how long most of u guys run a set of shocks for, on average

they arent neccessarily engineered to compensate for an unusually rough ride, they are engineered to work well with short suspension travel,that is what lowered shocks are fo

But they are designed to not be as "soft" (they are stiffer). If they were just shorter and not stiffer, you would bottom out even on the littlest dips.
