    Shocks For 6\" Lift

    I've got a '75 model with 6" lift springs in the front with double shocks, and blocks in the rear with single shock. Bucks real bad on the street. Anybody have a shock absorber sugestion that might help the problem, or is it just the nature of the beast. I'm going to have to get a neck brace soon, starting to feel like one of those rear window dolls. I noticed that Summit has a buy 3 and get one free special on Rancho shocks until the end of June. Is that a good deal ? Thanks for your help.

    I had the dual rancho 5000. they came with the truck. Remove two of the front shocks and go for a ride. You will not put them back on. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Good Lord, i have 2 RS5k's for each front tire. 2 for each back one and 1 kicker shock for each back tire. my ride is STIFF. Go for some edlebrock IAS, or some adjustable Rancho's.

    Ditch your dual shock. Go with some RS9000's if you got money to spare, or I have heard many good things about "Doetsch-Tech" shocks. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
