Make: Chevy
Model: Silverado 2500HD
Year: 2009

What is your driving style: Hard Performance Driver
Vehicle Setup: 4 Wheel Drive
Suspension Type: Torsion Key Lift

Question:

2500HD 2dr reg cab, 8ft bed. I raised the truck by cranking up the torsion bars. Will a stock length shock work or do I need to purchase a shock designed for a lifted truck? Thanks.

Answer:

With a torsion key lift on a 2009 Chevy 2500, you have extended the distance between the top and bottom shock mounts, so you should use a shock designed for lifted trucks. Bilstein 5100 series offroad shock part number F4-BE5-D146-HO is a very good choice, and will keep you in control no matter how you use your truck, be it towing, hauling, offroading or just highway driving.
