    I recently bought a used 2014 with 50,000 miles on it. The right front shock was leaking so I bought a pair of new ones (same as original) and had my mechanic install them. Should I go ahead and get new rears as well or wait for them to start leaking?

    If they are not leaking or blown I would hold off till they are and focus on other mods or maintenance

    Rebuild the rears instead. Forged Offroad and Texas Shock Works both have an exchange program.
    But at 50k, I would as that mileage is where you should be doing a rebuild on the shocks anyways.

    303 shock services. Thornton. I haven’t contacted them yet so I’m not sure if they still do it or not

    Yeah. Tim. He does. He has my shocks at the moment. I know he has or had a trip planned that was delaying things - but that was before the insanity.
    Anyway, I've had him rebuild a couple sets.
