2.5" TeraFlex options..

So I know there's a couple options to this kit..

Coils with shocks
Coils w/o shocks
Coils with shock adapters, no shocks

my question is, what are the shock adapters for?
would I need these if I was adding bilsteins with the lift?

shock adapters are for stock shock with lift.... kind of like an extension. I just got the TF 2.5 coils with Bilsteins. Actual kit is with no shocks.

I got my 2.5" lift kit without shocks also. I bought Fox 2.0 IFP shocks. The TF shocks are pretty good shocks though.

Help me decide on shocks.. Are the TF shocks good? I considered going with the kit that doesn't come with shocks and add Bilsteins. Is the extra $100 worth it??

I've been running the teraflex shocks for 60k miles now with no issues what so ever. No leaks no sqweaks nothing. Cheaper than the alternatives and the on road ride has been just fine and off-road they have proven to be very durable. They are a very underrated shock

Highly HIGHLY .. Recommend Rancho 9000's. I ran them and a lot of others do with TF 2.5's. Awesome shock for ten money. There's some pretty crazy deals today and Monday. You could probably set yourself up with a lift/shocks/front adjustable track bar and Northridge 9/16 bolt kit for under a grand.
