    Re: 6\" lift shocks

    I called the Autozone local and the told me that have them and they are $16. the guy at on the phone was saying that i would not have to have the longer trave, but they sell stuff to make shocks longer or shorter.

    Thanks

    Re: 6\" lift shocks

    I have an 87 /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif and will be adding a 6" lift in spring 2003. Will these fit on stock springs for the winter? Also same question... Front and Rear same part number?
    Thanks, Jeremiah

    Re: 6\" lift shocks

    whats going on with all the hard questions? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif. To tell the truth I dont know!! /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif. I picked up 2 not to long ago to put on the back but i am useing Steve Frisbies sp? lower shocks mounts and my cross bar to put them in. Depending on how they ride will make my decision to put them on the front. I just wanted to put out that there was a long inexpensive shock out there. As far as fitting under a stock suspension i dont think that would be a good idea.

    Re: 6\" lift shocks

    I doubt they would compress far enough to even get them bolted up, much less be able to move up and down when driving. Using a shock that is too long can bend the rod inside the shock, and then they are pretty much useless.

    Went out and bought them today, heres the pics! $19.99 each here in Indiana. Anyone have dimensions for the cross support to install these when I get my lift?
