    i just remembered last month i had a customer come in with a 89 chevy with a six inch lift and ladder bars. BUT the ladder bars had shocks connected like a motorcycle swingarm??? all the rest of the suspension was normal.WTF????

    I saw a IFS chevy with the same thing the other day, but he had 2 on each side, and 4 on each side of his back axle, so i was just like thats stupid. Is there any real reason to have those other than looks?

    Procomp makes a ladder bar kit for the newer chevy's. It also has the dual shock mount kits on them.
