    so i mounted up my 3/4 running gear yesterday to my 4" lift springs. looks to me like my stock shock absorbers aren't long enough. i'm sure they need to be replaced anyway, but i was kind of thinking of waiting for sake of cost and just dealing with a rough ride. in anycase, i just want to verify that i'm not doing something wrong, that they are too short and that i do need to replace them with longer shocks. is it true? thanks

    Yeah probably should get longer shocks, shouldv'e seen when I did mine after the 8 inch springs and 3 inch body lift, and making those ford axles fit, I had to get new shock mounts, weld them on and buy shocks that fit an f350 with a 6 inch lift. when the shocks are fully extended, they are over 37 inches long each! :rolleyes:
