    After you buy the shocks and the rancho kit i believe its as simple as drilling a couple of holes through the frame rail for the bracket. When i get some time i'm would like to look into rancho's triple shock hoop...saw an old 4x4 article back when my 79 was new and it was one of the mods they did...made a huge diff on washboards according to the article....the ones behind Lake Pleasant beet me and the truck to death..lol.

    My 3/4 burb came stock with quad front shocks so a salvage yard should have the brackets needed.

    I used the trailmaster Quad kit on my Blazer. It was easy to install and was around $40 + shocks.It made a big difference on off ramps and stiffened up the front end.
