    I put a set of monroe gas magnums in my 3500, big difference in ride and stability.

    Everyone I spoke to didn't like the stock shocks on the nbs, I'm waiting until spring to change mine to bilstein 5100's.

    I mounted up today, my front end is sitting approximately an inch higher with the blade raised.

    Just changing shocks made it sit an inch higher? How is that possible?

    The front end drops about an inch less with the blade raised, less lift sag.
