hotrodsbyray I measured the existing shocks while off the truck.I pulled them all the way open and measured them then I pushed them all the way closed and measured them.I measured from center of bolt hole to center of bolt hole.You don't get to pick spring rate on coil over gas shocks.but they pick up approximately 500lbs per corner.It just takes most of the weight off the leafs so it rides similar to a coil spring suspension.I got my sway bar kits from brothers trucks.They go on sale in the spring and fall for $99 each so watch for the sales.Go to their web site and get on their mailing list so you get the sale adds mailed to you.I just got back from Vegas about an hour ago.I will take pictures of them and post them tomorrow.
