I have a 2004 Silverado crew cab.

I lifted the front with 2" lift springs. I am looking for some regular HYDRAULIC shocks. These springs are a little stiff and GAS SHOCKS just make it a bit bouncy on the stiff side. I drove it without shocks and figure the HYDRAULIC shocks would be great to balance it out. Problem is now, the stock shocks are not long enough .... any ideas

Depending on the design, shock extenders may be available.

well, I just went ahead and took the chance on the matching MAXTRACS shocks to the 2 in lift coils I put on. That done the trick. I am not a fan of the Bilstein Shocks

I like them, stabilized the ride of the taller springs
