i've had my ST springs (2" inch drop) installed all the way around for about a year. just swapped the front shocks with cheap Gabriel Ultras from autozone but wanted to get the "shorter" rear shocks so my springs don't fall out of place when i raise the vehicle in the back (common problem with ST springs and stock shocks)

where could i get a good price on shorter shocks? nothing fancy just replacements. tia

I sell toxic shocks (made by explorer pro comp)
Those are the ones I used on my SS I just measured the stock ones and went with shorter ones they work fine.

I've got ST springs and am running Bilstein 1104/0929. Some places will try and sell you the heavy duty shock for the rear but you need the sport shock. Personally I would have gone with Koni's but they are really expensive, but they do have a lifetime warranty and the fronts are adjustable. Not to step on your toes Jimmer, but shox.com is where I got mine. The second pic in my sig is during shock/spirng install.
