    G63438 is the part number. Shocks are shocks. They don't matter anyway. I've got mine in back with the Echobit flip.

    I got the ones "with lift kit" at Autozone. I looked up a 79 K10, I'm sure the rest of the listings also have the same option. I havent looked to see.

    The ones Tim listed(G63438) will be pretty long for a 4" lift. I have them on my 6" lift and the bottom out when I get flexy... Need to make new upper mounts for them. They have the same dimensions as 9012's.(extended and compressed wise)... But I like them other than that!

    You have bottomed them out in the rear? Damn! I can imagine extending them til they stop, but bottoming them out is a long way from where they sit.

    Sittin on all fours I have about 3-4" of rod showing if that... It doesn't take much to bottom them out, but I get alot of droop! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I'll get some pics tonight of them while its sittin... They do have the same dimensions as Rancho 9012's and everyone runs them withthe Ford shock towers in front and angled in rear.
