they just adjust the ride quality. i have them on the front of mine and they're allright. there is a plastic **** that allows you to adjust the dampness (how quickly the truck returns to full ride height after compression of the shock)

if you want some lift in the rear. i would go with air shocks. i have monroe air shocks that i got at advance auto for $70 (a pair, and all the stuff to put it togther, air tubing, fill valve, etc.)

or a shackle lift

As said, they only help ride quality. Shocks do not add lift unless specifically designed to do so (air shocks or coil overs).

I went with the Monroe Sensatrak w/ load assist coil over shocks in the back of my Bravada. I have had a few air shocks blow quickly in the past.
