Some seem to think that the RE7 is a magical bag that doesn't require shocks. You need shocks..

Nice post Tom..that is a great explanation.

you dont NEED them but they will improve ride quality. ive ridden in trucks with and without and mine doesnt have any upfront which im perfectly content with. maybe someday over winter ill get around to sinking some into the rails but for now im ok with cruisin as is

long story short, You're not going to die without them, but you're going to be happier with them, one way or another. Know what I mean??

Some people make it sound like its hard to run shocks or something? What does it take to run shocks in the front of a bagged truck?

werd, you NEED them. I drove for awhile with no shocks on stock arms, the ride started to suck after a while. Highway it was fine, but if you hit any dips at speed you could feel it moving alot. Went to tube arms and bigger bags, no shocks for a while, but the ride was even worse with the lower psi. I guess some people like the wore out sedan suspension feel, but i do not, and hitting any quick bumps at speed will make you realize you need them. Ill never drive a bag'd truck without them. And with the large tires i have i didnt really lose any turning radius since the tires hit the body/frame around the time they hit the shocks
