Please help. Have gone through at least 6 pair in the rear and 3-4 in the front. My truck sits 35”3/4 with my torsion keys turned in almost all the way, yet my bump stops only barely touch at the closest corner of the jounce to the arm. I’m loosing my mind and arthritis is going to make to loose...

Thats a decent shock. Unless your truck is lifted I would stick with a sport truck shock......
