    Will new shocks help my 04 1500 with stock ride height smooth out the ride? Mabe Fox or Bilstein? I don't want to raise it up any since it is a 2 wheel drive. thanks

    Installing new shocks all the way around will definitely improve the ride quality. Even more so if your RAM is still riding on 15 year old shocks. It will be a night and day difference.

    It will definitely help, but keep in mind there's only so far you can go with leaf springs in the back.

    E rated tires stiffen the ride also.

    I personally don't care for bilstein, harsh but popular......Rancho's for me.
