ok what are the advantage(s) of mounting multiple shocks ? is it same effect as one larger piston one would be ? shocks are meant to dampen rebound movements after going over bumps and dips, and to slow down the flex of the springs as far as i know. good to have multiple if you have few or very flexy leaves ? also while im here making a new post anyways: what is proper or reccommended way to measure for needed shock length ? try to find some shocks that are in about the center of piston travel when the eyes are as far apart as the brackets are on the truck when its at rest ? or get some that are a little more than halfway extended with truck at rest ? -daily driver mainly street used 4x4, no rocks ever cuz none exist or ? or?
