    i ran a search and didnt really find what i was looking for about the factory dual shocks. how hard is it to convert it to a single shock? can i just take one off and it will be like the normal single shock trucks? does it matter which one? also for the F250 shock tower mod would u need to change the lower shock mount to? right now im thinkin about swaping in 52s up front and then doing a shackle flip and 56s out back. i would like to run a single shock up front for the time being till i put F250 towers on it. im in the process of gathering parts for this and also hunting down a sf 14 bolt to keep me wheeling till i swap in 1 tons and a drive drop 241 w/ SYE and clocking ring.

    You remove only the outer shocks on each side...

    You dont need to do anything to the lower shock mount for the tower swap...
