    Well I'm coming up on a 100k on my 07 chevy 1/2 ton z71 truck, I plow with it and atow a contractor trailer with it, how long should shocks last before they wear out, wondering if I should get some new shocks especially in the front end to give me some more support and a little lift to help support my plow a little better, and help would be great, matt
