    anybody got any part numbers or have a cheap 15" travel shock? im asking because im swappin in TC lifted 52's up front with ford towers. personally i havent noticed a difference between expensive shocks and cheap shocks, so thats why im lookin for something cheap, pressurized or not. i know shaffer's make 15" travel BBCS's but they are $100. for 15" is that about as cheap as im going to find or is there something cheaper? thanks

    They're not just on pirate. Here is their website, they have always been the cheapest and had the best service (give 'em a call, their website is far from complete)

    i checked porc, and checked out their shocks, and for the "porc" shocks it says no product to list in this catagory. maybe they stopped selling them :(

    edit: i was able to find them. $29.99 for 14.5" travel, sounds pretty good to me :)

    I bought the Pro Comp ES9000 shocks that are 14" travel for about 100 when they had the buy 3 get 1 free. You have to look in the back of the application book for the PN and they also have one with 15 or 16" travel.

    I can get the part number in just a few mins if you still need me to just did the swap for myself. but I used 2004 1 ton ford shock mounts the 3, 1/2 in grade 8 bolts to mount mine to my frame and got the 36 in long pro comp 9000 on mine.
