Shocks?

I only had my truck a couple of weeks and i think the shocks are going out(lots of squeeking on front end). The front end is leveled but not sure how they did it. If i go buy some shocks should i get reg factory height shocks front and rear or do i need to get front shocks for a lifted front end. Also what shocks should i go with any help would be greatly appreciated!

Depending on the brand you go with they may offer leveled shocks for the front end.

Bilstein 5100s and Rancho 9000xls are both a good shock. I am sure there are others too. I am installing a set of Rancho's on the wife's LBZ as soon I as I get a minute. I like these because they are 9 position adjustable.

Rancho is offering a 100 rebate on the 9000xls right now. If I can be of further assistance, don't hesitate to ask.

Take care,

Bad shocks don't usually cause squeaking... Things like bushings and ball joints are usualy responsible for that.

What's the best way to tell if your shocks are bad , I had high and low spots on my tires . My buddy told me it could be that my shocks are bad . Does this make sence ?

yes, the shock being bad won't dampen the suspension like it should, allowing the wheels to bounce up and down and cause the wear you describe.
