    Tryin to decide if I want to do the Ferd Shock Towers when I go 1 ton and all that. I know all about the front and stuff but what about the back? I want to use Doescth Tech 8403. Am I going to have to relocate the rear ones too?

    make a new crossmember in the back so you can mount the shocks like this /\. those shocks are too long to use in the factory setup.

    I put the furd towers on mine a couple months ago and built a new mount for the rears. I am running 12" travel MX 6's with a Medium valving on all four corners. One of the best things I did. Other than the D60 of course!. I have plenty of pics if you want to see my setup. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm not sure how long my Pro Comp 3000 are, but they are supposed to fit a (gulp)ford f350 w/6 inches lift. they work perfectly. I got them for $10.00 each, brand new on ebay /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif
