Lift question... I know i know..

So I have a spacer lift of 2 inches, and I'm in the process of buying new shocks as well. I have two new REAR ones from rough country, I believe they are hydro 7000 which I heard are pretty good. Now should I continue with rough country all around, and if so what type of hydros or nitro?? If not what would be best for the front shocks since there is more weight? And does anyone have a right up for installing spacer lifts and shocks? I need pics to do itmyself

Well that's a plus because rough country shocks are absolutely terrible. I have there progressive rate coils and I love them, installed shocks, took them out 2 days later and returned them I said in another post it was like driving a covered wagon over a boulder field. I would stick with the same shocks all around. Hydros are a good choice.

OME gets my vote for the ugliest shocks ever made lol, I'd never run them for that reason alone

Best shocks bar none are Bilsteins, but who wants to pay that much for um

Why would there be any more weight? I'm confused.
