Which shock ??

I have an 06 4x4 QCSB and want to build for street and strip.

Going to add caltracs and remove a leaf.

From my research I am seeing QA1s and bilstein 5100s

What about these king 2.0 shocks ?

I would like to lower the rear to level the truck as well. Is there a drop shackle available ?

If you're going cheap like the Bilstein route, might as well go with Rancho 9000's that are adjustable. For street / strip I'd go Rancho if not spending the coin on QA1s.

I'm going to try those shackles. That hadn't crossed my mind to look for yet.

Someone on Instagram was putting a set of afco coil over shocks in their 3rd gen and they used P/N 3850 double adjustable or 3855 single. Supposedly those fit in the factory spring bucket with shock tower delete plates and it will lower the truck a little.

Those King 2.0s are tuned to be soft, way too soft for the strip. You want something with more control.
