    I am in the process of putting a bnew frame on my blazer and the frame i got came with dual shocks on it. I was wondering if i used the one on top if i could put a longer shock on it or if this would not work.

    Thanks

    Yes, you can use just the longer mount. Should check your max compression and make sure you dont go too long so you bottom it out.

    When you run ford shock towers in the front, is there something you can get for the back too?
