    Hello everyone, this is my first post on here and i wanted to say hi. I just purchased a 91 blazer fullsize. I think that is has the factory quad shock option in the front because it has the upper shock bracket, but where does the lower part of the second shock bolt to? It only has one on it now. a picture would be great but if somone can explain it that would be cool too. thanks

    It uses a longer bolt on the lower mount. The first shock goes inside the factory lower mount, and the second shock goes on the inboard side of it.

    I don't remember what mine had on it. I took off the quads a long time ago in favor of singles

    most guys on here will tell you to loose the dual shocks. they make the ride harsher and dont help much. just a waste of money
