    sorry for asking this, I've searched but I suck at searching and cant find what I need, I need a new set of shocks for my 85 3/4 ton suburban with a 6 inch lift, what is a good place to buy from? and what shocks will work with my truck that someone can recomend, just looking for something in the 30-40$ range.


    thanks, sorry for the newBness

    Summit has a good price on the DT8000 also. The ones most commonly used around here are, I think, the 8403's, 13" travel, I think.

    You can get the Gabriels at autozone. About $20/shock.
