    I know everyone loves talking about 4wd shocks... but what do you recommend for a the rear of a 78 C20 that doesnt go offroad. This truck has 56" rears, is occationally used for towing moderate loads (nothing over 5000lbs yet) Oh, and im not looking to spend too much on these... say under $50 each

    thanks for the recommendations

    Those new edelbrock shocks are real nice but they are like 65 each, you may just want to get some gabriel shocks from autozone I hear they are pretty good. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
