TeraFlex Shocks

Hey guys..looking for advice.feedback on replacing my stock shocks. I have a 3 inch TeraFlex lift and 35" wheels. Was looking at TeraFlex VSS Shock Absorber from this place: TeraFlex Part 1545200 - VSS Shock Absorber by TeraFlex
The price is good and TeraFlex seems to have a great reputation. I have also heard of Blistein. So what do you guys recommend? Trying not to get too expensive....

I bought the Bilstein 5100's with my lift (Full Traction) and love em. Some find em too harsh, though...they do have kind've a "pickup truck" feel to em.

One member here recently got rid of his Bilsteins and (pretty sure) replaced em with the TF shocks.

If cost is an issue and the TF shocks are cheaper, then go that way. TF makes good stuff.

I heard TF shocks can be rough if you have no additional weight i.e. bumpers, tire carriers, and/or armor. Don't know for sure though as I havent run TF shocks before.

I'm running the TF shocks on a 2.5" lift. They are a stiffer than stock rubi shocks, but I don't find to be harsh. Just a nice firm ride.

Like Kb said, I went with 5100's on my TF 2.5 lift. I wanted the pickup truck feel, and that's what I got. Still 100x better than stock either way u go.
