    If anyone has a local dealer that has any new Rancho Shock socks, I am looking for some blue ones with black writing.
    Thanks.

    Shock socks, if your referring to shock boots I'd suggest not using them at all. They are purely for looks. They dont keep any of the elements out and actually hold the elements in.
    My 2 cents

    He is talking about a "sock" that slides over the body not the boot the goes over the piston.

    There's a place here in town (Sacramento) that sells like 12 colors that go over the piston part. I am pretty sure they carry it for the body as well. They are called Tognotti's Auto World. So a search and you should turn them up. They are kinda expensive and snotty but sometimes you can find cool stuff! I'm getting my headers there and I couldn't find them anywhere else in town.....

    why pay for socks when you could just paint the shocks whatever color you want?

    Don't paint 'em! Just find a local parts store that deals with Keystone distributors (Most parts places do) and they can order them for ya.

    Why do people keep calling it a Bronco!!!!! [​IMG]
