Lose the 5100's for some ICON 2.5s up front and 2.0 piggy backs out back.

I have never been a fan of the 5100 or 5150 shocks that I have used in the past. I had the 7100s on a Dodge with a 6" axle forward kit that were custom valved and they still never acted like ICON's stuff.

.
Are you talking about the steering stabalizer shocks? or the axel shocks? I am about to order the steering stabablizer kit from Top Gunz and I also would like to get some new axel shocks.

im not convinced that your issue is with your shocks as it may be more with the fabtech suspension. There springs are stiff.

I was speaking of the actual shocks, and the valving on the shocks is the most critical thing when it comes to the ride of these trucks.
