    If it's the 'factory' dual set-up, remove the shock that is 'outside' the lower mount on the long bolt at the axle.

    Just my $1.50

    you can remove either of them really. On my Jimmy if you looked at the lower mount, one shock was mounted outside the mount via a longer bolt and spacer set up... it would make sence to remove that one i would think.
