Nitro Drop Shocks are the best out there IMO......

i took a 2" block and cut it down using a ban saw then you can even it out on a belt sander. just make sure you leave enough material so when you even it out you don't take to much off.

doetsch tech are very good i use them on all the truck i lower. are you sure the zq8 are messed up. I allways try to keep the zq8 shocks because they are the best. Hotckis i think makes a bilstein replacement for our trucks like 45 each and worth it. Did you take the shocks off and they have no compression in them?
