Background: I will be installing a used procomp stage 2 kit, along with porbably deavers in the rear. I use it for my dd but I do want the best shock for the money for my go fast.
I am leaning toward the dual 5150's. What do you guys think?

Would you know whats the best shock for dunes stock suspension?

We have a great set up for a 4" lift for 5100's but not for a 6"....(In the 5100 Series, we never produced a specific 5100 for the auxillery shock.) Same is true for the 5150's.....we have a great set up for a 6" lift but not the 4". So here are the part numbers that we would recommend for factory duals. For the 4" w/ factory duals use 5100 Series (standard position) 24-185523 & (Auxillery) 24-186513. For the 5150's on a 6" lift use (standard position) 25-186291 & (Auxillery) 25-101966. When using the 5150's, please remember that you need to purchase the stem mount, part#192228.

A single 5160 would also be a great will yeild a more compliant, softer ride then either of dual setups....with that said, it will be a little soft when pushed hard. For a single 5160 in the standard location, use part# 25-177497 for a 4" Lift and part# 25-177473 for a 6 lift.
Awesome read thanks for the info
