    Just went to Auto Zone during lunch. I am planning on ordering a TC 3" lift today for '90 K5. I wanted to get a price on Gabriel shocks. Will the shocks set up for 4-6 inch lift work on a 3"??? Does anyone have part numbers for me. My truck has the quad suspension up front and I know some here don't like that but I like it alot and would like to stay with it. Basically the guy there could not help me at all. Thanks for your help.

    They are now 21.99 each as of when I bought mine in February of 2004 . The part number is in the tech section of CK5 . Up front you should use the ford towers to run these , in the rear they work ok in stock mounts ( for now ) :k5: :k5:

    Thanks. Forgive me for being a total idiot about this but aren't there 3 different part numbers. 2 for the front shocks (I have quad suspension), and one for the rear? Or does that one part number get me the complete package?

    If you ran the ford towers , you could run the same shock front and rear . I have the lift kit 4 inch rears up front , but I really need to do the towers to take advantage of the travel ( but then I need to trim my fenders , as I hit sometimes now ) :k5: :k5:
