This is not a full size truck shock. Spend the money and buy the Gas-Magnum shocks for a full size pick up. If all you do is drive the highway empty then they will do. Running the rough tar and chip back roads here the front bottoms out and clunks over extending on the smallest bumps. When changing I pushed the shock in and it hesitates 2-3 seconds before slowly extending. It is much thinner than the Magnums I pulled off. The Sensi-Tracs are not full size either but the Sensi-Trac Load Levelers are. But Gas-Magnums is what you want for full-size.

          These shocks have more travel than the originals. This travel should allow more suspension movement to permit traction on uneven ground. Truck rides like a whole new beast. Easy to install and the comfort of a lifetime warranty. SAVE YOUR RECEIPT BECAUSE THE COMPUTER SYSTEM KEEPS YOUR NAME AND PURCHASE FOR ONLY 2 OR 3 YEARS.

              If you have the money you're better off buying heavy duty shocks for the front end on Ford trucks.

                  Great question, Vince! Generally, shocks are sold individually. These Monroe Gas-Matic truck shock absorbers are sold individually as well. You would need to purchase 2 to make a pair.
