As stated in the subject line; I have a 4x2 2004 RAM 1500 with the 3.92 rear. The truck is pretty much my daily driver and I do use it to haul another vehicle on an open or enclosed trailer.

What would be the best shock to replace them with?

Thank you in advance,
WildBill

I've heard great things about the Bilstien 5100 adjustable shocks. Those that have them say they ride better than factory and you can adjust them to be 2" taller as well if you want. Hopefully someone else chimes in who may have swapped their stock shocks to an aftermarket set.

Welcome, shocks are hard to recommend as everyone is setup a little different and have different requirements. With my lowered truck I use custom fitted Monroes and Timbren rubber springs to assist control and ride. It is an excellent combination for my truck. Tell us more about your truck.

Thank you for the warm welcomes everyone & thank you for the feedback Greg & Steve.

My truck is a 2WD 2004 HEMI RAM 1500 Quadcab with the Laramie package. I purchased it because I wanted to be able to haul my other auto around the country when I wanted. I really fell in love with the SRT10, but at the time it was not offered with the quadcab option, & I needed the extra space over the want for the Viper engine. I opted for the 4x2 because it gave me the ability to haul roughly an extra 550 plus lbs and would be better on gas in the long run around town.

Aside from several cosmetic applications, I haven't done much to her. I do have a brand new SRT10 hood that I have been planning to put on and paint and would love to replace the exhaust with a package that make her bark as bad as her bite while improving the performance. I have a heavy right foot.

Thank you in advance for any other guidance or recomendations you may have.

Regards,
WildBill
