    I just bought a 90 GMC Jimmy fullsize 4x4 and am looking at replacing the old shocks.
    I noticed there are 2 on each side up front.
    Is this normal?
    Or did someone add them on , aftermarket.
    They use the same mount locations on the bottm but not the top.
    The truck does not have a lift.

    It's stock get rid of them and run RS9000's. If you do a search there is alot of people who have gotten rid of the dual set and run single.

    That's what I did. Got a 5" lift and installed one Rancho 9000s at each corner. Runs a lot better. :D

    I have a line on 6pro-comp 1000 for $145 shipped, or 4 for $100 shipped.
    Should I just do the 4 shipped and get rid of the extra 2?
    Thanx.
    Im not going to lift it as I drive alot of hwy and tow a car dolly on the freeway.
    Im running 33" and plan on just going with a 3" body and a rear wheel spacer to even out the tire width.

    Well I bought a set of pro comp 3000 from 4wheel parts.
    Killer deal..........
    4 - s3000 shocks
    1 - s2000 steering stab.
    5 - black boots
    = $135.00 shipped
    Awsome deal!
    So now my Q is should I order 2 more shocks for the frt or just install the normal set?
    I drive street primarily and the truck in its current state drives lkike a boat.

    Forget the two extras up front. Good shocks will handle the work load fine.

    Don't see many performance vehicles running quad shocks in the front. :)

    then of the 2 up frt which one should I delete?
    the vertical one or the one that points back towards the rear of the vehicle?
    Also would hurt anything to just leave the 1 old shock therfore having 1 new and 1 old on the 2 frt corners?
