My truck doesn’t normally ride like an ox cart due to its stubby wheelbase, the front shocks were just completely toast.
Once I got them off the truck (why can’t all shocks be this easy to change???) if you compressed them down they didn’t rebound back at all. I was purely on springs.
I got Monroe shocks (yeah yeah I know Monroe sux yadda yadda) which are an obnoxious shade of bright yellow. They do what they need to and match the rears that the previous owners changed not long before I bought it. The truck rides so much better now. Well worth the money spent.
