    Hey, I was reading the install of the f-250 shock tower mounts for the blazer, and its kinda old so I dont think you can buy the shocks it showed anymore, so does anyone know of some shocks that would closely match the ones they had for travel? Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Alright, and I could get the shock tower mounts off a f-250 or the dealership right?

    I know you can get 12" travel Gabriels for $20 a pop at autozone, I have the part bookmarked and am going to use them in the rear

    I don't know how much potential travel the ford towers add
