    I just bought a 84 K5 with a 4" lift running 31/10.5' 350 mated to a sm465 4 speed. I am looking to lift it to 6"s of lift with dual shocks all the way around. I was thinking to use Skyjacker for the lift and the Shocks but I also saw tuff Country has the dual shock mounts. Will they work together?
    I am also looking to find if there is a 5 speed that I can bolt to the 350 and np208, is there a tranny that will fit this? Can anyone help? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Don't know about the 5 spd, but putting dual shocks on all 4 corners is just a waste of money. Unless you are desert racing or something, 1 good shock per corner is all you need.

    Even then, you don't need dual shocks. The right shock is the way to go. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
