Shock Recomendation

My 06 Dodge 3/4 ton Cummings will be needing shock sometime in the future. I really don't want to stiffen the ride to the point of popping rivets on the inside.

I'm running Rancho adjustable shocks so far I'm using the same setting empty as loaded, no control or ride issues to report. Most likely 60K on shocks or so but only 600 towing miles, no plans to change. The factory shocks did not do the job on my 2003 Ram 1500 either.

I just installed a set of Monroe Magnums on my 2003 Dodge/Cummins. I've only pulled the AS Excella about 1,500 miles since installing them, but they seem to be doing the job very well.

I ran the originals for around 70K, which was about 20K more than I should have...the Monroes give a decent ride, plus a lot better ride...

For whatever it's worth
