yah i got a lifted suzuki sidekick, 3inch calmini, but i think the shocks are gone or going in the back, but it doesn't bounce, but when i hit any FSR with pot holes holy shit it feels like the truck is going to fall apart, there is almost no give in them.. that being said i can also feel every asphalt joint on the road too. there supper stiff long story short, what would be a good shock for something as light as a sidekick

rs 9000x adjustable are by far the best choice

I have heard from a few people that the springs that calmini gives you in the 3" suspension lift are to stiff, I am finally putting mine in this week so I'll let you know

That'll be the springs, not the shocks. Shocks just dampen spring action, to keep you from doing like a trampoline.

that is what i always though too, the other thing too is if i jack up from the frame the rear axle drops like maybe 1/2 inch at best. so there is defiantly no down travel. maybe my best bet is to get longer shocks, but then i run the risk of havening the coils pop out.
