    Would taking one of the dual shocks off the front make the ride any softer? I have a stock K5 with 31's. Thanks in advance.

    Or if you like the look you can drill a small hole in the bottom and drain one out. But be careful the stuff is under pressure and you will get a shower if you don't make sure you direct it away from you! [​IMG]

    I would remove the rearward facing one. Its the shorter shock. You want a longer shock for extra travel. Almost like the shocks they use on the F-250 shock towers, but not quite as long.
