Re: Rear air shocks

It is not the best idea since they put stress on a weak portion of the suspension.

A helper air bag kit does alot more with out ruining anything.

I want one on my 2018 Silverado, and I have to custom fab mine due to lowering the truck

Re: Rear air shocks

Monroe-Max area good brand, but if you are using for lift or extra load support, you would have better results with an air bag kit as mentioned abov. Thocks and shock mounts are not designed for lift support.
