    Looking to get Thuren 1.5" springs in the next few months and was going to get the overland front shocks with them but the matching rears won't work without their springs. Any other recommendations fox, bils etc that will give me the travel etc I need for the springs. Not looking to break the bank, truck usually only sees mild trails and the beaches in the summer.

    Thuren sells Kings for the rear. Are you going with their coils for the rear or stock?

    For the stock rear coils, the king 2.0, is 480 for the pair, I’ve heard they are amazing ride wise.

    But I agree, $480 for shocks is a lot

    Yeah especially when the overland shocks they offer are only like $145 a pair. I've found some Fox's that are roughly $140 each just not 100% sure on the specs needed for the front springs.
    From what I've read thuren says approx 15 compressed and 24-25 extended for their 1.5" springs.

    Thuren sells fox shocks, maybe call them and see what they say?

    I know this is kind of a dead tread but what kind of shock did you end up going with?

    I am in the same boat when it comes to I need to keep the rear coils

    did you like your choice you picked out?

    I ended up with the fox 2.0s for the time being eventually I will be upgrading to kings but that's down the road a bit. The foxs are halfway decent they are good enough to scratch the itch of better than stock but they are by no means mind blowingly different
