    what all is needed to do one on a single shock front?
    can it be done?

    is it worth it? better ride etc...

    LMC sells the stuff i think.

    Not worth it.

    Run better single shocks and be done with it. The dual front shock setup was from a time when technology isn't where it is now.

    I've got duals now, but will be going back to single, when more important projects on the truck are complete.

    On my Jimmy, the factory as a dual front shock setup on the stock 10B. After I swapped in the 4in Tuff Country HD springs, I opted to take a pair out. I used the attachment points that let the shock travel the straightest and has the most travel. Without a heavy front bumper/winch, the HD springs ride a little hard and I'd imagine it'd be even worse with dual shocks.
