    Its up to you. How you drive and how you want it to handle, and what are you going to be doing with the truck are really important. I run 50wt shock oil with the stock shocks and pistons. I have the original Slayer so mine came with double pink springs on the front, and double blue on the rear. I moved the blue to the front and put a set of yellow on the back. Its all I had. Im going to try the Slayden setup under the pitpass section. Double black in the front, and double purple in the rear. Like I said, its all in what you want.
    One shot.....One kill, no exceptions

    The slayer pro comes with the best shocks you can buy. as for springs I put double black on mine and 50K oil.
    I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran

    Did you use double black front and rear?

    I found that the Double Purple on the rear and Double Black up front was too stiff for my liking. I ended up with 45wt oil in all four shocks with Double Blacks in the rear and Double Greens up front to be a good setup for me.
