OK I put a 6" front coil suspension with dual shocks on the truck from James Duff and when I'm moving the truck if I hit a small pothole and it feels like I ran into a wall so my question is do I need to change the coil spring to a 7" or 8" so it will ride better and also would I have to also replace the shocks or will the shocks that came with the lift still work if anyone can help with answering my question I really would appreciate it.
