    What kind of rear dual shock kits are you guys using on your k5? I would like to look at some for a reference on how I am going to build mine. I was thinking of something similar to what 55willys is building but with 4 shocks on it.

    I don't remember how to get to the pic, but he does (or has) made that setup using 4 shocks. PM him for more info.

    Is there really any benefit to dual shocks in back? Won't it just ride stiffer? (unless they're adjustable, where it'd be kinda nice because the shocks won't get too hot on you)

    Well if you turn the shocks inward at a steep angle they aren't as effective at dampening, so putting dual shocks inboard would make the vehicle ride roughly the same as using a single shock in the stock location....Or somethin' like that /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
