    Thats 42" of shock right there /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I will be running tripple rates but for setup purposes I will be running a single 250 pound coil on each shock so I can determine the sprung weight of each corner then order the other 2 springs and 2 tenders. I just mounted both coils to one shock to see how cool it will look /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yep, 18x2.5 /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    I'm not going to be doing any high speeds so the tripple bypass is not for me. Are you going to run a coilover and then a bypass shock next to it or run leafs?

    Im gonna run leaves. I got a set of 63's off a late model 1/2 ton that supposedly make good travel so im gonna try those, and if I dont like em im gonna get some custom deavers. I wish I could 4 link the rear and swing some 30 inches of travel out of the back but I dont want to hack this truck up that much.
